New files and folders missing Group "Access is Denied"

    Question

  • We have recently changed all of our XP machines over to Windows 7 and have now noticed that when a user creates new files or folders on the network it's not adding access for all users.  The only way around this is to open the file/folder on the users machine it was created on and edit the "Group or user name" under the Security tab.  Even as an administrator I'm unable to open any of these files/folders.

    Our server is SBS 2011.

  • Hello,

    to understand you correct, a network share containing the user data is not working as expected?

    Please post the SHARE and NTFS permissions from the shared folder.

  • Hi Meinolf

    This first document was created sometime ago and everyone can open it.

    Below is a new word document that I created on my Windows 7 machine and saved to our P: drive on the SBS 2011 server, as you can see it does not have (users (MELROSE\User) included.

  • Hello,

    the new file is stored below...\WPTEXT and the old one below ...\WPTEXT\LGA?

  • Hi 

    All new files or folders any users create can only be accessed by them, when it used to be that everyone could access them.  It's t do with the missing "User (MELROSE\Users)".

    I'm sorry if I'm not making sense, I'm self taught and this whole Groups, Shares and Permissions if new to me.

    Regards

    Scott

  • Hello,

    please post the SHARE permissions from the folder that is used also. Therefore open the folder properties, SHARING tab and open the Advanced permissions.
