Folder access permissions

    Question

  • I have a problem that has been showing up a lot lately on a few different user accounts, where I will add a new folder on the server's network drive and set it as shared, then give that user or group containing the user full access to the new folder and then be unable to modify its contents while connected to it as that user, theses are mostly isolated cases where only one or 2 users are affected but it is happening more and more on different servers, does anyone know what could be causing this? and how can I fix this without remaking the users account?

  • Hi,

    Firstly, please let us know if “My documents” is a local folder or a network folder.

    If the folder is stored on a network location, please refer to “Why did I get a message saying that a location can't be included because it's not indexed?” in Libraries: frequently asked questions.

    If not, please change the owner of your old documents to your current user and see how it works.

    In addition, it is recommended to post a now thread about the issue for help.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hello,

    Are you sure that the user has full control for NTFS and Share permissions? Please check that.

  • Ah, I had been messing with just the NTFS permissions I had forgotten about the share permissions I figured those would mirror each other, thanks!

    On a semi related note I have a few workstations hat I upgraded from windows XP to windows 7 and am now unable to add their my documents as a library, i receive an error that says it cannot be done because the location is not indexed this only seems to happen with upgraded PCs with old users and not with new windows 7 PCs with new users, Any Ideas about that? i have tried to make sure that both the server and the workstation are indexing the correct locations but that does nothing
