Win7 Shared folder appears to be disconnected or doesn't delete a file from within the shared folder

Question: Win7 Shared folder appears to be disconnected or doesn't delete a file from within the shared folder

I have all 4 PC's in the office using Windows 7 Pro. I have one computer that is designated to house my share folder for scanning documents and attaching them to our management system. We are finding that multiple problems occur - not at once and at
different times . Sometimes, the document within the shared folder called "IMAGEBATCH" will not delete. Sometimes that document deletes, and then re-appears within the IMAGEBATCH folder. Sometimes the document will not
scan through the network to the IMAGEBATCH folder. Sometimes we get an error saying we "don't have permission to delete this file". These circumstances occur on all computers, including the computer that houses the original file IMAGEBATCH.
Sometimes in the day, each computer that is supposedly looking at the same IMAGEBATCH folder see different files.
Restarting the computer clears the problems, but then start right back up at irregular intervals, sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the middle of the day.
I did find a duplicate file named IMAGEBATCH on the "C" drive of that PC, so I deleted that, but the symptoms are still there. This is the only shared folder in our entire network. What can I be missing? I have checked to make
sure it is a share folder, all the permissions are in place, and that we all can see the folder through the network. What am I missing? I am the owner and administrator of the system.

Preferred Solution: Win7 Shared folder appears to be disconnected or doesn't delete a file from within the shared folder

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi

I have shared a folder on my local network. I gave "full control" permissions to "everyone".
I can see and open files from remote computer, but I fail to delete them, as it gives "no permissions" error.

How can I fix that?

Thanks!
 

Answer:Can't delete a file on shared folder from remote computer

Something to try - Right click the file - properties - Security Tab - Advance -
Change Permission - put a check mark in the box for - Include inheritable permissions from this Object's Parent - Click - APPLY - OK - OK - OK

When I try to rename a folder on the D: partition that used to be a Windows XP recovery partition that has some Pokemon commissions in it, I get this message.
"This folder is shared with other people
If you rename this folder, it will no longer be shared."
 
But the folder is not shared nor has it ever been.
 
What is going on? Why does Windows 7 think that it is shared?

Answer:“This folder is shared with other people” when renaming not shared folder

Hello there, 
 
This happens because of the way the Access Control List is queried by Windows Explorer to determine if the folder is shared. Because this folder you tried to rename is a child folder of a parent folder and the two folders have a different security entries, Windows will treat as a shared folder. This causes Explorer to give you the warning that you received. 
 
​Just double check, this must be a shared folder. 
 
Hope this helps!

Hey, guys!

You seem really helpful, so I thought I'd post here.

I'm running XP and am the administrator with no other user accounts (and the guest account is turned off).

I've been trying to delete some music files (MP3s and WAVs) in my Shared Documents folder, but I get a "Cannot delete" error message which says:

"Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."

I have tried:
**Changing the "read only" status in Properties for the files,
**Changing the default program that opens these file types,
**Making sure iTunes doesn't have them in its library

What'll help me delete these files? I defer to the wisdom of you'se guys.

Thanks.

So yesterday I decided to set up and optimize my home network by creating shared folders and stuff. As an IT student I'm learning about security so I started by disabling all the Home Group config and creating users with passwords and enabling password authentication so everytime I want to access a computer/folder I have to enter an user (I have more than one for when I need only read or write to a shared folder).

The only problem I have is when I try to access XP. I have one XP and three Sevens. In one of the Sevens, when I try to enter the XP shared folder it ask me for an user/password, something like this:

http://lpmv.epfl.ch/files/content/si...entication.png

Note: I'm using a workgroup, not a domain.

But on the other two Sevens I can't access XP. It says permission denied, or something, but the thing is that they don't ask for credentials.

I guess is NOT a XP problem, but how can I fix this?

Thanks.

Answer:Can't access from Win7 to XP shared folder

theres an option for turning on lower security in the advanced settings / file sharing options.. you need to lower the encryption.
Hope that helps you.

I am applying a solution to take backup from clients machine to a shared folder location, the share management will be done through their AD accounts through a backup application.

However, I want to prevent user from accessing the shared folder location and deleting contents
it would be possible to use another account for shared file access but am looking for better option.

if Anything from the following can be done it should be great:
- Modifying permissions to allow writing and modifying content but not deleting
- Disable web access to shared location through windows explorer
- Only allowing access to shared location through the backup application in any way
Really appreciate any help.

Answer:Shared folder, write but not delete

not done any Active Directory work for a while but I'm sure the delete permission was separate so a deny could be applied the the delete for the group concerned who would have the other permissions, you would need to check the stacking of the actual permissions to be sure though, a deny is a dangerous thing for sysdmins as you often forget what groups you've assigned yourself as for testing

Also it's worth having a look at Sysinternals as I think they still have some advanced AD tools

As most of the others should be possible through normal NTFS permissions and even the parental controls it should be possible using Group Policy

I'm a complete Linux newbie but reasonably proficient with Windows.
I've set up a laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 32bit and shared specific folders on my Win7 PC. Everything should work okay as they both can see each other, but when I try on Ubuntu to access the Win7 shared folder it asks me for username and password. In Win7 I'm always logged in as Administrator with no password set and Ubuntu won't let me connect to it leaving the password blank. It just keeps asking for my username/password over and over again without any kind of error message. It doesn't come up with 'access denied' or anything, it just keeps refreshing the username/password login/connect gui so I can't say which side of the fence the problem is occurring on though I suspect it's on the Ubuntu side. Any ideas on how to get around this?

Answer:Ubuntu not accessing Win7 shared folder

I have a feeling that you might have to set a password in Windows... Without it Windows thinks it's not secure and wont share the folder, (even with other Windows users).
With apologies if I've got that completely wrong!

Hi,

I have bought a new laptop that comes with Windows 8.1. In my desktop computer that has Windows 7 I want to share some folders with the laptop through LAN.

The users in each computer are different. I want that when I try to access the shared folder from the laptop, it ask for login with the Windows 7 user, is that possible? Or is it necessary that the two users have the same name and password?
Thanks

Answer:LAN shared folder Win7 to Win8.1 with login

Yes you can set up network shares assigned to certain people. Which you should be using a NAS, not another computer.

If it is stuff that is worked with all day, get a NAS.

Hello,
I have spent several days trying to figure out how to implement the following scenario.
I work for a small company. We have a workgroup of 5 pc's. Two of them are winXp and the rest win7. I have bought a switch and put them all in one network. I have set some public folders with read/write permissions. Everything fine so far...
Here comes the problem... I can't setup homegroup, as this is a win7 feature, and could probably solve my problem. What I want to do is to password protect, or limit somehow some folders that will be available/ accessible only by some partners. Any ideas or workarrounds???
I have downloaded Kakasoft shared folder protector, but it doesn't seem to work so good. I encrypted a couple of folders and after a couple of attempts now I can't open and/or decrypt/restore them...
Thanks for your time everyone!

Answer:Shared folder protection in a mixed win7 and winXP LAN

Right a Home group is only for Windows 7 computers. For a Mixed LAN with 7 & XP you must use the workgroup system and not the Home group.

EDIT:

As to password protecting Some Folders that can't be done. You allow access to LAN computer by Username and Password. Once you enter the correct username and password to access a PC you have access to all things shared on that PC.

I have a shared folder on my Windows 7 desktop. I am trying to connect to it on my Windows XP Pro laptop.

Sometimes I am able to connect, and sometimes I can't. I will get the message, "Cannot connect... you may not have permission to use this network resource." Whenever this happens, and I re-boot the XP laptop, it works fine. The other day I lost my connection to the router, and when I regained it, I was once again unable to connect. Even when it doesn't work, I am able to ping the Windows 7 "server" by computer name, I can see it in My Network Places, and when going to cmd prompt and type "net use" I see that folder as "Disconnected." How can I be able to reconnect without re-booting my laptop every time I lose a connection? Thanks.

Hello everyone,

I'm using a laptop (with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed) as a DVR and media streamer to all other devices in the house.
My TV recordings are recorded into a temporary folder and when the recording is finished the program moves the files into the My Videos folder.

The My Videos folder is shared so we can watch the recordings from the Xbox downstairs or other Windows 7 devices in the house.
This worked pretty well in the past but for some reason new recordings (or downloads) aren't shared by default anymore. All files have a small lock icon (shared with nobody) and I have to manually share new files within an already shared folder.

This is pretty annoying and takes away the convenience.

I would appreciate any tip to fix this problem to have all files in the shared folder(s) shared by default.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:New files aren't shared in shared folder

It's easy once you know how, just right click the C:/Video's folder and choose properties, Security tab then Advanced button, then just put a check mark where it says "Replace all Child Object Permission Entries with Inheritable Permissions Entries from this Object, then hit Apply, OK....this will fix the problem you described.

Running into a problem and I can't seem to find an answer for it. I have a folder on my Windows 7 64 bit Pro computer. I have set it up with a hidden share ($). The sharing is set up properly with Everyone having access. I have 10 additional computers on the network of different OSs (Vista Business, XP Pro and Windows 7 32 Pro). My problem is that after 6 computers actively access the folder, I can't get any additional computers to access it - gives me an error stating I have reached my max limit. I know Windows 7 Pro should allow 20 users, give or take, but just 6! I found out that each computer that accessed the folder was showing as having 3 sessions inComputer Management. I have no idea how to correct this so I can get others to be able to access this folder at the same time.

Any suggestions? TIA

Answer:Multiple sessions are created when accessing a shared folder in Win7

Are the shares "shared folder" showing up three times in those computers? Try unsharing "share with nobody" or remove Everyone from the list, for this folder two times and see if that gets rid of the extra shares.

I need some help configuring file history. I want to have it store files on a shared folder in a local hard rive but I want that folder to be inaccessible to other computers on my home network.

Now its fairly easy to set up a shared folder on a local drive and store file history there but the problem is that other computers can see all my files. I tweaked the sharing permissions on my folder so I removed the 'Everyone' user and put in my user name (which is an admin) and set the permissions to full control. Despite setting the permissions to only my user account, other computers are still able to open the shared file history folder and view and edit its contents.

I can't disable file sharing all together because then it would defeat the purpose of what I am trying to do and also I have another computer on my network store its files on my computer through file history. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

This can be done but you need to create a Homegroup for your personal machine and the machine you need to share with, leave the other Workgroup machines out of this Homegroup.

I have a couple of posts in the link which explains the process pretty well, it's very simple really, if you have any questions just ask.

Hey everyone.

I use both Linux (Ubuntu 10.04, 2.6.33-AMD64) and Windows 7 professional, and sometimes I get a little boggled at the apparent lack of functionality in W7 in the following situation.

I have a network share in the root of my drive that I've called "DropBox" where my boss and I can both put files to be shared via the network. I have a bunch of files in "Downloads" directory that I'd like to be able to share at various times, but would rather not have my downloads directory directly shared as it violates my sense of order. IE, I would much rather have one shared folder from which you can reach all the other content I need to share on the drive, and if I need to un-share something, simply delete the shortcut, and Voila! instant anti-sharing.

Figure 1. Clean Sharing


In Ubuntu, you can create a symlink within a shared folder that points to a non shared folder which allows network users to access that non-shared folder.

Does this functionality exist in W7?

Thanks,
NYTCG

Answer:Shared Shortcut to non-shared folder.

Okay, so I solved this issue on my own =) TGFG! The answer lies in the MKLink command.

Specifically: mklink /D /J Downloads "C:\Users\Robert\Downloads\"

Works like a charm. All networked machines have access to my non-shared directory through the shared folder, and it looks nice and clean on the viewers end.

Thanks for letting me rubber duck this one.

I hope I figure out W7 soon...

I upgraded my wife's office to twp HP W7 systems this past fall, wireless networked through belkin router. Old files used to be on wife's PC now in folder called "H Docs (old PC)" in her public folder. Shared to everybody. This was working up to yesterday.

Today, on the second PC, her associate opened a folder nested in the main "H Docs (old PC)" folder. Everything appeared to be there. She needed to get a phone number from another file located somewhere else, so she closed the folder while she got it. Came back to the folder - opened it - "this folder appears to be empty" or like that. Closed the folder and opened another - also empty. Back a couple of folders out, selects another folder, opens it and every thing's there. Closed completely out, rebooted - the same. Calls me in.

I go through much the same, checking paths, checking whether access has been changed - can't find a reason for this. Checked the folder on wife's PC to be sure there's anything there to share - it's all there, thank goodness.

I pinned the Files folder in my onedrive.live.com account to the Windows 10 Start menu, and also saved this folder as a favorite in Edge, which is my default browser. But after closing Edge, when I then click the onedrive.live.com tile in the start menu, or after opening Edge, if I click the OneDrive link in the favorites bar, OneDrive opens my Shared folder rather than the desired Files folder. To see the Files folder, I can click "OneDrive" in the menu bar. Moreover, after the Files folder has been opened, if I then add a tab and click on OneDrive in the favorites bar, OneDrive correctly opens the Files folder, and will continue to operate this way (the correct way) as long as I don't close the browser. When I saved my OneDrive Files folder as a favorite in Firefox, I experienced the same problem. So the problem does not appear to be related to Edge.

Hello,

I have a Canon ImageClass MF4690 Printer/Fax/Copier/Scanner installed on a small network connected to 2 computers operating Windows XP Pro SP2 by means of a hardwired LinkSys router. The computers operate Norton Internet Security 2007 and seem to be running fine.

The printer works fine for the most part, except that I cannot get it to send a scanned file to a shared folder on a targeted computer. [I once got this to work, then it stopped.] I get a nonspecific Canon error message--message 0735. I can however scan to a file placed on a USB memory stick plugged directly into the printer.

The shared folder is properly set up on the target computer and can be seen and used by the other computer. The 2 computers and the printer are all setup with fixed StaticIPs appropriately (this was needed instead of using DHCP in order to allow the printer to communicate properly for printing and to allow remote UI management of the printer, which expects a fixed IP address).

I am guessing this is some kind of subtle network, NetBEUI, or SMB configuration problem. I've read the manual carefully, but it does not show all the details needed for configuration of this feature. I have spoken to tech support several times about this but they were unable to resolve the problem.

Hi, all

I have a file server on linux box. It's used to work fine on Win xp. Now I have new Win 7 box on LAN. It seems works when I map a drive on one shared folder from file server. It didn't ask me user name password and automatically connect. While on XP at the first time connection XP will prompt for user name and password. And I have an old application, which use the file server, runs fine on XP. Now on Win7, it can't access remote drive by complaining no permission nobody. I think Win7 use nobody as user name to connect the remote drive. Is that possible I can change the remote drive login user name and password. I mean let Win7 prompt for a user name and password when connecting to remote drive.

Answer:problems about shared folder from samba(linux file serv

I think my problem is similar: I connect to a NAS (Western Digital Mybookworld, where I opened a ssh channel, so I can control linux box there - with basic linux and samba) from Windows 7.
Usually I choose its name (\\mybookworld) in explorer and it connects without asking any password.
After 4-5 minutes of inactivity Windows can't access anymore the linux box and seems to me an authentication problem, since other pcs in the network continue to communicate with my nas. If some program was connected, it crashes and it's impossible to kill the process from task manager.
Then I try to put IP address of my NAS it reconnects for some time, then the same.
I must reboot everytime, but due to hanging programs windows does not reboot. I have always to switch power off brutally.
I tried to remove credentials, to activate/deactivate ntlmv2 and ntlm and lm authentication via registry (windows 7 home premium has no gui for that, you must pay some fee more to have a fully functional system?)
No way
I tried to shut down every firewall
Nothing

I can't seem to predict when XP Pro SP2 will let me move a folder from SharedDocs\My Videos
to C:\ and when it won't! I don't get it. If I'm Owner don't I own it already?

Sometimes I can just grab the folder that I copied from another machine and placed in My Videos and just
drag it with the Left Mouse Button into another folder on C:\ and it just moves it by changing the directory entries. Then sometimes when I do that, it copies all the files!! Well with video files that's pretty slow!!

Anyone have a clue? Seems to be no rhyme or reason to it.

Answer:Move Folder Out Of Shared Folder Same Drive Wants To Copy?

Hello MilesAhead,I'm not absolutely sure, but some of the phrases in your problem description seem to indicate that this might be a variation of the "XP + mouse movement + mouse buttons + keyboard keystrokes" behavior described in the following post. The post deals with the unexpected copying of files when trying to delete them, but I thought the same (or a similar) principle might apply with respect to moving files/folders.

Hi

I have a strange problem, I can`t seem to fix.
I have a shared folder with many sub folders.
If I access this from another computer, it just shows some of
the folders (ex: of 120 it shows 15).
For another folder on the same server, with the same setup, it`s
not at problem.

I have checked the sharing permissions, and all of them are the same
on both shared folders.

All run Win 7 Ultimate.
Router: TP-Link TL-WR941ND, with DD-WRT v24-sp2 (11/21/10) std - build 15778

no difference)
All use Windows Firewall and Security Essentials.

And this are the same problem on all computers that's trying to open that folder.

This all happened after a reinstall of Windows.

I am attempting to go paperless.
I would like to create a shared folder that will allow my
students to drop their assignemnts into it , but not allow
them to open the folder or see/opne the other files, thus allowing them to acces the
other student's files.
I have tried (on the NT server)giving the students:
1. Add: write & execute (WX)
2. Add & Read: read, write & execute (RWX)

I have also tried sharing from a Win98 desktop.

Sometime I can access the folder on the desktop but not via an app (i.e.Word)
What I end up with is either a folder they can't access
or a folder that they can get to everything.

I rememebr setting up a "Drop box" many years ago with
Apple share.
How do I do this with NT 4 or Win 98?

If you are running homegroup you need to change it. Homegroup is for win 7 machines only and it uses IPv6. For networks with mixed environments workgroup is a better alternative. to test for yourself create a new network connection using workgroup and if it works disable Ipv6 and kill homegroup

My other laptop has Windows Vista Home Premium. I need to access the shared folder on the Vista Business machine from this laptop. It can see the Vista Business machine, and it can see that it has a shared folder.

What happens is that when i was trying to access to files on the server, i typed in \\192.168.4.10 to the address on windows explorer. It failed with the following message

"\\192.168.4.10 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resources... The network is not present or not started."

Then, i checked to see if i could get onto the internet. yes, the internet's working. I run windows command prompt and run ping to the server's IP address and got replies back from the server. Everything seemed to be OK. I couldn't think of anything that might be the cause.

After that, i tried to access to the server again but this time by a different mean. I went to windows explorer and then click on "My Network Places". I found the shared folder on the server there and clicked on it and it worked. I could get in with no hassle at all. So what's wrong with typing in the IP address to the windows explorer. Very strange one.

Has anyone had a similar issue like i have before and might be able to help me out?

THank you in advance
 

Answer:Can't access to shared folder

1. try without the backslashes.
2. Maybe you have the wrong digits in the address?

I have Windows 7 Professional x64.

My pictures are located in this folder: L:\Users\<name>\My Pictures

I want to share this folder with another user on my computer. Can't do it.

Simply altering the folder's permissions doesn't work. If I change permissions so that the folder in question does not inherit any permissions from parent folders, and instead allow my user read-only access to the folder...access denied.

Alright then, I tried to share the folder with my user. Although sharing usually means sharing with other computers on a network, it also applies to other users on the same machine. But the user can't access the shared folder...access denied.

I could move the folder in question to the Public user, but then everyone can see it.

Holy cow...what does it take to share a folder with another user on the same computer?

Answer:Can't Access Shared Folder!

Hi ;

You may go to folder right click sahre and select specific user then type in username and add folder read / read-write

Imagine we are having a workgroukp LAN of 30 comps. I am accessing C drive of my system thru n/w. After my work I came back to my seat. Just then only I discoverd my C drive which I shared contains very critical docs which is confidential. But whn I wnt to that system the origianal user of that system is not allowing me to log off b'coz he is hvng so many unsaved works which have to finished.

so what can I do to disconnect the shared resource I accessed frm other computers without logging off?

Somebody told me to use net system command..but that is useful only for Domain environmnt..
If any one knows.. U r great man.. let me know/

I apologize if this is in the wrong area.
So I'm running win xp mode on my win 7 computer and I have a shared folder to pass files between them. The folder's drive letter is S:
Every time I restart my win 7 the S drive disappears and I have to re-share it through command prompt.
Any suggestions? To initially share it in command prompt I used this: subst S: C:\WinXP
I mapped the folder in win xp so that isn't a problem right now, I just need that S drive on win 7 not to disappear when I log off or restart the machine.

Hopefully this is the right place to write this. Be patient with my writing please.
I have a shared folder on my server computer. I can access all my folders except folders within my music drive. I can access the main share (root of the drive), but when i go within that folder, i try to click on another folder and get the error:

\\server\music\folder name is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator to find out if you have permission
Access is denied.

Here is what i have done.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/913628

I have also tried:
disabling the firewall
deleting the share then making a new one
Simple file sharing.
Disabling simple file sharing.
Changed permissions to full control, everyone, and specific users.
Other permission changes.
A couple of other things i cant remember right now.

About a week ago i was getting an error that was saying i don't have enough memory resources or something. Cant remember the exact error, but it would not let me access any of my files or folders, shared. I did the fix i found and it worked for about 2 days. Now i am getting this problem. The errors show up on the network computers, not the server.

It happens when any computer on my network tries to access the folders. It is an Windows XP Professional box. Other pc's are vista, xp, and 7. All same error.

Any help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Cant access shared folder

try checking the NTFS permissions, instead of just the share permissions maybe?

belkin/motorola phonetools blue tooth issue work being done... then the trouble began.
suddenly no office apps would load
win installer giving error code 1635
ms support walked me through reinstall office
now all but FP office apps load

BUT now I have a ton of file folders visible in the shared documents area for all users but there aren't any files in the folders.

all file folders and files in the my documents directory are fine, present and accessible

tried system restore for a couple of earlier set points, no luck
tried FINDNTFS, couldn't see any file names in the filelist.txt files it produced
tried PCinspector and just seeing empty recovered files.

Thinking files are still on drive, me thinks that the commonality of the ALL the shared document folder is a pretty big clue, just do not know what to do with it.

any ideas, help most appreciated

thanks in advance

Hi guys,

Here's the problem..

I'm trying to connect a shared folder on a desktop PC using my laptop.
However, everytime I attempt to connect, it causes the desktop PC to BSOD.

The error that pops up seems to point to a video driver issue w the onboard Intel graphics adapter.
I've downloaded and installed the latest driver from HP.
Still the same error occurs.

The desktop specs:
HP d530 w Windows XP SP1, 256mb ram, 40gb HD, cdrom
Computer browser & Server services are started.
Permissions are set correctly.

Laptop specs:
Compaq Evo N800v, Windows XP SP1, 512ram, 40gb

Any ideas??

Hi all,
I have three pcs, one desktop (Win XP Pro) connected directly to wireless router (Linksys WRT54G), one desktop (Win XP Pro) connected to network via Linksys Wireless "B" USB adapter, and a notebook (Win 2000 Pro) connected to network via Linksys "G" PC card. All pcs have a good internet connection and share my printers and files just fine with the exception below. I also run the Windows XP Pro firewall.
There are two "issues" that I would like to figure out:

1. In order to see the files on any pc I have to disable the windows firewall. Is there a way around this without compromising security?

2. Whenever I try to see a shared folder on the Win 2000 laptop, I am prompted for a password. There is not password assigned to that pc. It's in the same workgroup, folder is shared with full access. What am I missing?

Thanks for any help.

Gary

Answer:Shared folder issue

Is there some reson why you can't connect the third PC to the router? Does the second PC have two network cards; one to connect to the router and one to the third PC?
