Access denied error for local documents and settings folder

    Question

  • hello,

    we have installed windows server2003 enterprise edition in our office we have created a domain and all the users are connected to that domain.

    The problem we are facing is when a user is connected to server through domain login he is able to access all local files and folders, the user is getting access to documents and settings folder in local disk C but for sub folders it is saying access denied error.i have given full permissions even though it is denying...

    kindly solve the issue..
