Can't Write To Shared Folder - With Full Permissions

    Question

  • Hi All,

    This has been driving me potty, 
    I'm trying to create a roaming profile for a user but for whatever reason I am unable to write to the network share.

    The user account has full privileges to the directory (I even made it so "Everyone" does)
    but not matter if I login through Windows 7 (as a Directory Server) or through another OS as a normal fileshare
    I can't write to the folder

    I'm running Server 2008 R2 Trial Edition (if this makes any difference)

    Kind regards
    James

  • does the user has privileges both in the sharing permissions and the ntfs permissions? if you check security -> advanced -> effective permissions for the user, does he show the appropriate permissions?

  • Hi there,

     

    Sorry yes after posting this I adjusted the drives share privalleges so that everyone had read / write access and then narrowed it by the NTFS permissions to maintain security.

    Sorry for the stupid question, not something I had even thought about

     

    kind regards

  • Since I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 I cannot save files, even though my account is "Administrator".  I receive an error message that says "You don't have permissions to save in this folder".  I had no such problem with Windows 7.  I have developed a workaround by running the following from an administrator command prompt:  icacls *.* /grant:r owner:F   This seems to fix the problem, but the permissions do not persist through a reboot, so I'm forced to repeat the process.  IS THERE A PERMANENT SOLUTION?
