File copy to network share issue


  • We are using SBS 2003. If we create a shared folder on a workstation and give "Full Control" to "Everyone" and then try to copy files to it from the server, it eventually times out with "inaccessible" / "access denied" message. The files copy over to the share up to that point. We have to reboot the workstation to gain access to the share again from the server. The share is on a Windows 7 PC.

    Sorry- I do not have the exact error message at the server.

  • Hi:

    The question is not clear.  What does "up to that point" mean?  Some files copy but not all?  Does it always fail in the same place?  One you reboot the station, can you copy any more files that failed on the first pass?

  • "Up to that point" means the files copy until the point of the  error message appears and then the copying stops. So some files make it to the destination share. You cannot start copying again until you reboot the pc where the share is located. Then start copying again and hope for the best. The files that did not make it on first pass make it after reboot, but at some point it fails again. If the share is located on the server itself, there are no problems copying the other way.

    It does not always fail in the same place. It happens with each workstation we have tried. We do not have Windows XP to try, so all targets are Windows 7.

    This server has ISA 2004 installed.
