Do not have Permission to create / Save files & Folders

    Question

  • I have created a Windows 2012 VM. If I login as Administrator initially created when I created the VM, I have no issue.

    But I have created another User Account and made it Member of Administrators Group.  When I login as that User and try to create a File or Folder, I get a message that I do not have Permission to create / Save the file or Folder.

  • Hi EsmailSadeghi,

    >>I get a message that I do not have Permission to create / Save the file or Folder.

    I have created a new VM 2012 on my Hyper-V machine then test your issues by repeat your steps, found no issues with the new account, creating and saving files or folders.

    For your issue, I suggest you could please refer to the following steps to troubleshooting:

    1>If this machine is domain joined, I'd first check if the new created account is belongs to the local admin groups(although it is always automatic join in the local admin group if the machine joined the domain).

    2>Second, checking the user account's properties->Profile to see if you have used roaming profile for this account, if so, repair it then try again.

    Below is a link about Roaming profile:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb776897(v=vs.85).aspx

    3>Check your current Disk to see if your new account has the permission to access it.

    For how to check, please refer to link below:

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb456977.aspx

    4>Using gpresult /r to check how many GPOs your current VM has applied, if you could shown us the detailed usage I suppose it would be very helpful for further assistances.

    5>Open the powershell console shell with elevated privilege, then run this command:

    New-Item -ItemType Directory -Name test

    to see if you could create folders or files or current driver or another driver, for instance: D,E.

    6>If your machine is not domain joined, just check or create a new account then add it into the local admin group to see if it helps.

    Besides, if the above methods doesn't help, I need you to answer more question for me for further help:

    1.How did you create this VM? Copy from a template or downloading a new image from Microsoft official site?

    If you need to download from the official site, please take a look at link below:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/evalcenter/evaluate-hyper-v-server-2012

    2.Did all of the others new created accounts has the same issue?

    3.Did this VM is a totally fresh machine or with some special applications in?

    Hoping to get more feedbacks from you.

    Best regards,

  • Hi,

    1. There is no domain, only one standalone server, Windows 2012.

    2. You said: "6>If your machine is not domain joined, just check or create a new account then add it into the local admin group to see if it helps.".  I did create a new user and added to Administrators Group.  The Administrator account that was originally created does not have this problem.  But the one I created & put in Administrators Group does!

    3. I created the VM from the Image available on Azure Porta.

    4. I have not created another user account.  But I believe they all will be the same way.

    5. Just created the VM.

    Thanks, Esmail

  • Hi,

    I have built a new VM from Azure for your issue, testing found no issues.

    See figure below:

    So, I suggest you could try to rebuild your VM to see if it helps.(rebuild takes about 15mins,not too long )

    Remember to backup data before rebuilding if you need.

    Best regards,
