  • This error message usually shown when you do not have appropriate security permissions. If the remote shared folder is on a FAT32 partition, just check the Shared Folder permissions. But if the remote shared folder is on an NTFS partition, along with checking shared permissions, you must check security permissions, too.

  • Hello,


    Access to a folder on a file server can be determined through two sets of permission entries: the share permissions set on a folder and the NTFS permissions set on the folder (which can also be set on files). Share permissions are often used for managing computers with FAT32 file systems, or other computers that do not use the NTFS file system.

    Share permissions and NTFS permissions are independent in the sense that neither changes the other. The final access permissions on a shared folder are determined by taking into consideration both the share permission and the NTFS permission entries. The more restrictive permissions are then applied.

    The following table suggests equivalent permissions that an administrator can grant to the Users group for certain shared folder types. Another approach is to set share permissions to Full Control for the Everyone group and to rely entirely on NTFS permissions to restrict access.

  • Hello,

    Solution: Try one of the below options

    (1) Add special groups on shared folder with appropriate default permissions. 

    (2) Check ATS & NTFS permissions contracdiction becoz most restrictive applies on network user.

    (3) Create a new test folder, Share & test it with that user a/c. 

    (4) Do the same but access with other user a/c

    (5) If both above not worked, reset your security policy by importing default policy on source m/c.
