Windows 2008 shared folder with XP and permission settings

Question: Windows 2008 shared folder with XP and permission settings

Hi

Client of mine has got windows 2008 server as a standalone PC (no domain) with username: server and password : fake

And he has 5 other PCs (XP Profe SP3) on the same LAN

PC1, username : forum1,password : work1

PC2, with username: forum2, password:work2

PC3, with username: forum3, password:work3

PC4, with username: forum4, password:work4

PC5, with username : forum5, password:work5

Windows 2008 has got a folder to be shared with PC1, PC2, PC3,,,,not PC4 nor PC5

I know how to share the folder if I use option “Everyone” Under Properties > Sharing > Advanced Sharing > Permissions > Add > Everyone ,,,,,,and I know how to use the option “Public Folder” which is located %SystemDrive%\User\Public

With “Everyone” option PC4 and PC5 would be able to get access to the shared folder
Now my question if I do not want to use "Everyone" option , I have to create additional three local accounts on the server which are ( username : forum1,password : work1 ) and ( username: forum2, password:work2 ) and ( username: forum3, password:work3 )

Those username then will be able to login to the server which I do not want that to happen. Is this what suppose to be in such scenario ?

Thanks

I have few computer at home with different Windows version, there are Windows XP, Windows Vista HP 32 bit and Windows 7 HP 64 bit. I have two share folder in the desktop using Windows Vista HP 32 bit, Share A is set to Full Control for Everyone and Share B has a permission access setting, allow few persons to access only. All computer can access Share A without problem. However, there is a problem with Share B. I only allow 3 users to access this share folder, 2 of them using laptop with Windows XP Home and Professional, they can access Share B without problem, the 3rd user using laptop with Windows 7 HP 64 bit (username is Jolene) can't access Share B, it shown "You have no permission to access...". I already double check the user name and password, there are correct. I try to login to the network using Jolene in other laptop with Windows XP, it can access both Share A and B. That means the username and the permission setting are correct in the Windows Vista desktop. I removed the anti virus in Windows 7 HP laptop, disable Windows firewall, or bootup in Safe mode with network support, but still can't access Share B. I think there is some setting which I missed, hopefully someone can help me to solve it. Thank you very much.

I have a home network with 4 computers, everything seems to work fine and i can see the folders i share on each of them.
Now, what i need is this:
I have one folder which i want to be visible only between 2 computers not 4, one with vista and one with XP.
Their names are MyPC and MyLAPTOP
When I try to set permission for my desktop to access my laptop for a specific folder, i only have few options like Administrator, everyone, guest..., and if i try to add MyPC in the window "enter the object name" on the laptop it says "an object name MyPC cannot be found".
How would i set only the desktop to "see" just that folder?
Hope I have been clear enough....
 

Answer:how to set permission in shared folder?

You don't establish rights by pc but by user.

You would create a user [or users] on the pc containing the share the same as you logon the other pc/laptop with. You would give this account(s) rights and deny everyone else to this share.

I have 3 PCs on my Windows 10 home network (2 wired desktops running Win10 Pro and a wireless laptop running Win10 Home). All are on the same Workgroup, and I log into all of them with the same Microsoft account, verified on all machines.

I have shared some folders on PC #1 with My Microsoft Username ([email protected]). I can access those folders fine from my laptop, and I can *see* the folders on PC #2 but clicking on them produces the error, "Windows cannot access \\PC1\foldername -- You do not have access to \\PC1\foldername. Contact your administrator to request access."

Note that I also have shared some folders on PC #1 with "Everyone", and I can access them fine on both machines. It's only the folders shared with my Microsoft username that produce the error on just that one machine.

How do I fix this?

Answer:Shared folder permission problem

And now after trying numerous troubleshooting steps, I can't see any of my other computers in the Network File Explorer window on that same machine any more. I can see Media Devices, Network Infrastructure and Other Devices, but none of my Computers, not even the one I'm working on.

So I assume my whole networking configuration is hosed on that machine.

Windows is always so infuriating, I can't do the simplest thing like share files with myself, not even on Windows 10 which is supposed to be so wonderful.

I'm about ready so revert back to Win7, not that that's any better, but at least I could see my networked machines.

im trying to share my user folder from across my network,

the win7_x64 machine is set up a sort of a server.
the win7_x32 is the laptop that im trying to obtain write access to.

i have the user files on the d drive on the server, and i have "UserFiles" folder set to share across the network. this works fine.

the problem comes when i try to write into the directory. i have special permissions set on the folder so other users cant cross access each others files.

lets discuss the D:/UserFiles/Wolfdogg directory, its my files on the user drive.

so in the d:/UserFiles directory i have permissions as follows
SYSTEM - full access - files, folders, and sub folders
Administrators - Full Access - folders, sub folders, and files
Authenticated Users - traverse only - this folder only

on the d:/UserFiles/Wolfdogg directory
Administrators - Full access - folders, sub folders, and files
Wolfdogg - traverse only - this folder only
Wolfdogg - full access - subfolders and files only (not this folder)

I have replaced all child objects each time i make changes.

i can get into all my files using wolfdogg credentials, i just dont have write priveleges.
what setting am i missing

Hi,

I have shared one folder and in security I added "everyone" and given full permission (full control, write, etc.)

But still I cannot access some pdf files in the folder from another computer. I can open the folder but when I try to open the pdf file I'm getting some permission error. Then I went to the first computer I selected all pdf files >> right click >> properties >> I changed security and added everyone there. Then I could open the pdf files from another computer.

Now the problem is every time when I add some files in the shared folder. I have to select all the files inside and add permission even though the folder itself is given full permission. I wonder why is it so?

Answer:shared folder with full permission cannot access files inside

If the same users access this folder. Add each person individually with Full Control rather then the Everyone Group to the permissions of the folder. Or You can add the users to the Power Users Group. Then allow the Power Users Group to have Full control.

we have a directory that is over 1TB that is shared. I need to rename the folder. Problem is the folder is in use by a bunch of system tasks and it doesn't look like Windows will ever let me. I have tried various tools like unlocker and rebooted the server. I tried renaming from command line. The only way I can see to do it is to boot into a linux shell/tool i frequently use and rename the folder there. Problem is that requires downtime. There are tons of threads online about having issues renaming folders. Is there any other way to rename the folder that does not require downtime?

I am trying to set my folder permission settings on XP Pro. If I take away someones ability to delete they can no longer rename a folder. How do I enable someone to create and rename both folders and files, but not delete them. Thanks.
 

Answer:Folder permission settings.

I have these basics down.

It seems that when a new file is renamed, the phrase "New Folder" is actually being deleted, thereby requiring "Deletion" capability. But a user can also delete anything else with this permission, which is bad news. Is there away around this bug?

The network environment is a Workgroup consisting of Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7 Pro, and Windows XP Pro.

My example:
I have enabled Guest account in the Windows Server 2008 R2 computer.
I have created a new folder "guestshare" in c: and use Share with menu to add Guest with Read/Write Permission Level.

When I try to map it in the Windows XP Pro machine thru Map Network Drive function under Tools menu, I won't see that share using the Browse button. However, I can type the UNC path and map it.

If I turned off the Password Protected Sharing in the Windows Server 2008 R2 computer, I will see that share using the Browse button and able to map it. What is the reason for this behavior?

I wonder whether the following settings in Advanced sharing settings of Windows Server 2008 R2 can affect mapping:

File and printer sharing
Public folder sharing

Since mapping a drive requires authentication, is there any settings in User Right Assignments and Security Options of Local Policy that can affect mapping? For example, I wonder about the following settings:

User Right Assignments
Access the computer from the network
Allow log on locally
Deny access to this computer from the network
Deny log on locally

Security Options
Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only
Network access: Shares that can be accessed anonymously

The message comes after the Client machine accesses the program, and attempts to generate a pdf.

The 64 is Win7-Win7 connection, while the 32 is connected to an XP.

Hey guys,

this has been driving me nuts for the past few days trying to figure this out.

I am trying to share a folder off my external hard drive that is connected to my laptop with my Desktop PC.

Both computers are connected to the Homegroup and are seen on my network with no problems finding them.

Now every time I click on the folder that is on the laptop from my Desktop it gives me this error:

I have read around and see that I need to edit my permissions and I have done so for my laptop and I have given my PC full control over the folder but I just doesn't connect and gives the error every time.

The only folder on my Laptop I can access from my PC is the "Users" folder...

I don't know why this keeps happening and I'm going crazy here trying to figure it out.

Please, any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!

EDIT: I GOT IT! for some reason the permisson "Everyone" wasn't included in the folders I wanted to join... My life is complete now

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

Hello People,

I have recently upgraded a computer system from xp to windows 7 via vista (along way I know and not my personal choice).

The pc is connected via ethernet to a windows server 2008 r2, from where it has access to various documents they use.

After the upgrade, the access time to load / edit these files is very slow compared to what it was under Windows XP.

Has anyone here had a similar experience, or maybe know of a tweak to make the file access quicker ?

Answer:Slow connection to shared files on Windows 2008 Server R2

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!

Hi Everyone,

I am using Windows XP Media center edition. I think its similar to windows xp pro with added media features. Anyways I have 1 user account which is my account and its an administrator account. What I wanted is if anyone else log in my pc then he/she should not get persmission to view certain folders that I wanted. So I created another account with the name "User" and set it to limited account. Then I logged into my admin account and disabled simple file sharing. Then I right clicked on a folder and did properties. And in security I selected the user account named "User" and selected deny for most options (like modify, read & execute , read ) etc.

Now when I logged in thru account "User" then I am unable to access that folder. Thats okay and its what I intended. But the problem is when I login thru my own account (which is admin a/c) I also get the same error. If I double click on that folder it says access denied.

Now how do I fix this problem and achieve what I originally planned to do. I am myself now unable to access that folder thru my own admin a/c.

If anyone can help me I would be glad.

Greetings,
I have been working with programs such as Blender 3d recently which conflict with my security settings. I have been getting permission denied for saving files and doing other functions in these programs. I found out how to disable the administrator setting by going in command prompt and typing "net user administrator /active no" and how to keep the computer from constantly bringing up warnings asking me to allow a change to my computer by going in user account settings and sliding the slider to zero. It seemed to be working untill I took the slider back up so that I could have some security enabled while on the internet, and then even when I took the slider back down it was still the way it was before, not letting me save my files on some programs and bringing up messages asking me to allow myself to run a program I had clicked on. I tried bringing up the command prompt and re-disabling the administrator setting and also made sure the slider was down all the way, to no effect. I was trying to do a system restore to restore whatever is screwing this up, but an error comes up everytime telling me it can't access a file possibly because of antivirus being on, even though I already turned all the security features off. Any way I could have missed something that I did right the first time but not the second?
Thanks!

A few days later I noticed Windows was installing updates upon start up. I checked my update settings and sure enough they were set for everything to check and install updates automatically.

I am trying to tidy up my shared documents folder but am told that I 'need permission' to move a file into another folder. There is a similar problem at click here and it was resolved by giving the files passwords. Isn't there *any* way that I can resolve this problem without resorting to passwords? I find that I can move the file in the main XP machine, but it doesn't show in the vista laptop, which is odd.Thanks for any help.

Answer:shared file needs permission

You could take ?ownership?:Right-click the folder, select Properties > Security Tab > Advanced at the bottom > Owner Tab > Edit > Highlight your username and put a tick in ?Replace owner on sub containers?? and Apply > OK. Click Yes when you receive the Security pop-up window then click OK to the Close/Reopen message. Make a note of the previous owner in case you want to change it back.Now go back to the Properties > Security Tab. Click Edit > Add. Type in your User Account Name in the box under Enter the objects name to select. Click on Check Names > OK. Click on your User Account Name to highlight it. Check the box for Full Control > Apply and OK etc.

I have noticed that after every reboot the permissions of the Pictures folder revert to a read/execute status for "Home Users," and although my log in status has Admin credentials, I cannot save to the folder without a prompt. Plus if my Lightroom catalog is in there I can't open it. Once I manually change the permissions to Full Control, it works fine, but reverts back to the read/execute status at each reboot.

Others have reported similar behavior, and while we thought it related to iCloud for Windows, even after removing that the problem persists.

I did a right click on the Pictures folder, and in "sharing" selected "not shared," after which in properties I no longer see "Home Users" listed. So it works fine until the reboot when it reappears.

I am not using the system's built-in Administrator account, just my own account with Admin rights.

The OS is an upgrade from Win7 Pro(64-bit) to Win10 Pro (64-bit)

What doe s the rest of the group have in the way of comments? Thanks.

My friend is having trouble with his computer running Windows 7 Home Premium X64 and I was wondering if I could get some help

I don't exactly remember when the problem started or what could have caused it although he has Classic Shell installed but it seems to not be related to that

Anyway the problem is anytime he tries to modify a folder (Rename, Move,or cut you can copy freely only without an error) it will say the folder can't be found in the location and it will say the exact location of the folder in the dialog box

also there is a cancel and a Try again button. You can press the try again and it will work 100% of the time but the error is getting annoying especially when moving a lot of files as it happens with every folder change and for every file in the folder there has to be a way to fix this how I don't know as I have never seen this happen before
So I though I would ask the forum

Thanks
 

Answer:Windows 7 Folder Permission problem I assume

Punctuation would make that much easier to parse.

I'm guessing that he has corruption under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions

Hi, I have read through all instructions on how to grant myself permission and I am still having problems.

It doesn't say trustedinstaller is the owner?? it wont allow me to even change owners anyways and when I click take owner ship nothing happens either?? What can I do??

Give Permission to the folder/drive that you are facing the issue with.

In Windows Explorer, right-click the file or folder you want to work with. From the pop-up menu, select Properties, and then in the Properties dialog box click the Security tab.
In the Name list box, select the user, contact, computer, or group whose permissions you want to view. If the permissions are dimmed, it means the permissions are inherited from a parent object.
Turn off UAC (User Account Control)

Before you can do anything, you must turn off the UAC, or you will be locked out of the following steps.

1) Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> User Accounts
2) Click "Change User Account Control Settings"
3) Move slider all the way down to "Never Notify"
4) Reboot

2) Take Ownership

Yes take ownership. Even though you are logged on as an Administrator, you can't change files that don't belong to you. The Program Files folder is set to the Trusted Installer group ... Read more

I've created an Image Back Up; however, when I review the folder created it denies access to the folder "You don't currenlty have permission to access this folder". 

Questions 
1) I could change the ownership of this folder, but I'm not sure who I should change this to or if this is even required.  Should it be: 

Administrators (PC Name\Administrators)
OR
ME (PC Name\ME) 
Currently, The admin, and backup Operators have access to this folder and it still states, "You don't currenlty have permission to access this folder". 

I'm concerned that if I do need to perform a system back up, Windows will have an issue with the permission rights to reinstall Windows. 

Answer:Windows Image Backup - Don't have permission to access this folder

You normally restore an image by booting the machine into Repair Mode. In that mode you will not have any problems with access permissions.
You can modify the permissions of the image folder if you wish by giving full access to the Administrators group and the System account.

When upgrading to Windows 10, all my existing file folders became Read-Only.  My ID has administrator privilege but I cannot turn off the Read-Only box and make it stick.  I reverted back to Windows 7 but the file folders are still locked up. 
How do you/I make the change?  My computer is virtually useless!

Answer:File folder permission problem after upgrading to Windows 10

Here is one way to fix the problem:
In File Explorer, right click on the documents folder.
Click Properties.
Click the Security tab.
Click on Edit to change the permissions.
Click the box to allow HomeUsers full control.
Click OK and make sure the change is applied to all subfolders and files.
That should fix the problem. I don't know why the administrator privileges are not sufficient without also changing the user privileges. Must be a bug.

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.

I am getting a typical error saying I do not have permission to access a shared folder and I should contact my network administrator.

Both computers are on Win 7 64bit.

Both are on the same workgroup. Both are classified as "Home" profile.
Both have: Turn on network discovery, file / printer sharing, turn on sharing, 128 bit encryption, turn off password (neither computer has a user admin password), and allow windows to manage homegroup connections.

I can see the computers in network, I can see the shared folders as I share them. But I cannot access them.
I even joined the same homegroup with the password, even tho before when I was sharing (pre formating) I don't remember to ever having to join that or remember that password for my other computers

Dear God, how can I explain how frustrating this has been...Ok, so just a very brief back story, my job has a shared Toshiba file, where all scanned documents, and received faxes can be viewed as PDFs. Everything was fine until my computer (Windows XP) crashed, and I rebooted it with Windows 7. Everything else has been fine, but resetting up this file has been a nightmare. After about 15 calls, someone was finally able to create a folder that worked yesterday, however today it is back to the drawing board. Additionally, the folder that was set up was NOT the same one that my co-workers use, which is fine as long as I can access the data, but for whatever reason it is not working...I don't know if it has to do with the network path, the file name, or what.

Now, I am definitely hooked up to the network, and I definitely have network discovery on. Password protect is not on so that anyone can view the shared documents. If it makes any difference, the printer/copier/fax machine/scanner is a Toshiba E-Studio202L machine. When I click homegroup/sharing options, everything is checked off...I really do not know what the problem is, as the documents are just not getting forwarded to my folder (or any folder). If anyone could provide any assistance I would be extremely grateful.

Thank you!

I?m having problems accessing shared folders on my Windows 7 64-bit Enterprise desktop PC from my Vista Home Premium 32-bit laptop. Each time I try to access a ?shared? folder on my Win 7 PC from the laptop I get ?Access Denied?.

Here is my setup:
1. On my Win 7 desktop I have the following users? accounts and passwords setup (see below). I also have these two accounts setup in the same way on the laptop. Both accounts are members of the Administrators group and have full rights/access to everything on each PC. Each computer is on the same workgroup ?JEEPTOWN? as well.

User (desktop) #1 ? jeep
Password ? windows7

User#2 (laptop) ? sarah
Password ? windowsvista

Typically I'm running Windows 7 on a SSD and I have a 1TB storage drive with apps, music, documents, movies, games etc on it and it's all good and gravy. I need to learn W8 for work so I pulled my current SSD and put a blank SSD in, installed W8 to it and went about using my storage drive like normal...however Chrome constantly complains about needing admin permissions to write to my F:\Downloads folder. Copy/pasting files complains about needing admin permissions to write to the folder, uTorrent will not write to any of the folders due to permission denyed.

My user account is an administrator with the same name as the one I used in W7 but I understand GUID is probably different. How come this never happens with my various W7 installs? UAC is also disabled. I'm guessing it has to do with folder ownership...any hints?

Here is another example. I'm trying to extract a zip in my drivers folder on the F: drive, winrar says permission denyed. I can create a new folder, need permission to do it. Copy zips to that folder, still permission denyed. Why is my storage drive so F'd be permissions right now? No wonder I call it the Fuck drive (F drive) lol

Hello,

I have a problem with Windows XP Media Center Edition (2005). To be more precisely Recently I have re-installed windows and moved some of my folders to an external HDD. The problem is : one of the folders was encrypted with a certificate encryption. Sadly I didn't back-up the certificate, so now I can't access the folder nor do anything with it, it says that I don't have necessary permissions.

I tried to modify folder permissions through the security sub menu of proprieties dialogue but with no success.

So I was wondering if there is a possibility to find that certificate or to force permissions since data that I have in that folder is impossible to restore nor find somewhere else.

Thanks in advance for your help.

hey guys,

What I am trying to do is map all the user permissions on a shared drive.
This includes who has access to what subfolder and etc.
Now, I could go through this manually, but that would take weeks being that its a 60GB share.
Also, I have to add group permission now and then to certain folders etc.

Does anyone know of a program that will map user permissions (group) of each folder on the drive?
 

Answer:Mapping User Permission on a Shared Drive

Is the file structure heirarchical? If so you can just set sub folders to inherit permissions from the parent. I usually base share permissions on group membership. I create groups in the form of [servername]_[sharename]_[rwx]. I then provide those groups with access to the share. The only thing needed from that point is to add the required individuals to the group. It's much easier to keep track of this way and you don't have to wait forever on huge shares that propogate security settings to a million child folders everytime membership changes.

Windows 7
I have a network which I replaced my older Dells with new Dells. We are using workgroup. One of them I accidently configured as a homegroup instead of a workgroup and did not notice it until I was having permission problems accessing the other 3 desktops. I changed it from a homegroup (left the homegroup) to the workgroup as the other 3. I could see the other 3 but could never access them (permission problems). I worked with Dell most of the afternoon (what a mess) and was finally able to access them except I cannot access the 'c' folder on any of the 3 other desktops, nor can the other 3 desktops access the 'c' folder on the 1 desktop. However the 3 other desktops can access the 'c' folder with no problem. There seems to be some permission problems that carried over from when it was configured as a homegroup that I cannot get around. How do I get this cleared up with paying Microsoft to fix the problem with their own software?
Appreciate any help.

Answer:Permission Problems accessing shared directories

Well no help from here.
I ended up fixing the problem myself.
Posting so others may try what I did, since no help.

I ended up setting my network adapter.

I ran the following commands as administrator:

ipconfig /renew
netsh advfirewall reset
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

This seemed to clear up the problem. I did have to go back into advance sharing to allow files to be shared again.

good luck!

I have one folder in which I keep all my music. There are 605 items, consisting of both folders and music files.
I sort the folder by "date last saved" so that my newest songs are always at the bottom and the oldest are at the top, after the sub folders

However, whenever I open the folder, windows seems like it is re-searching and rebuilding the cache, taking upwards of 5 seconds in order for the folder to be sorted again.

This only started happening after I reinstalled windows, however that is all that has changed. My music is on another drive, the same drive that it was before I reinstalled.

Why does it keep doing this, and how do I get it to remember how it is sorted?

I have set up on a networked PC (Windows 7 Professional) a shared folder directory structure which has sub-folders for each userid defined on that PC. Each user will from their own laptop on the network perform a network folder mapping to their own sub-folder. I am able to perform the first network folder mapping for user A. When I try to perform the second network folder mapping for user B using a different drive letter, I get the error message

The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password. To connect using a different user name and password, first disconnect any existing mappings to this network share.

Googled for help and found a number of suggestions like using IP address for the network folder mapping - I am using IP address. Found another suggestion to use "net use" to delete any existing mappings - when I type "net use", I do not see any other mappings.

So I am at a loss, after staring at this problem for the whole day.

Any help would be very much appreciated. I will have about 60 defined users performing the network folder mapping from each user's laptop.

Answer:Windows 7 Network Folder shared access

Is B a subfolder of A? If so I think your scheme will require the folders be on the same level. Or if not that, in mutually exclusive trees. When you share say, Users, all subfolders are also shared. To share folders in a tree they should all be leaves.

Hello

I'm using Windows 8 Pro and attempting to share (Advanced sharing) a folder on the network via a Windows Live account. I did the following but have not had luck:

1) Added the account (a @hotmail.com) under PC settings -> Users
2) Created a shared folder and added the @hotmail.com account in permissions (It shows it there as a SID)

Now, trying to browse to the folder from a Windows 7 Ultimate box, the @hotmail.com account and password are not accepted. From the same box I can use my Admin Windows 8 account alias however.

Any ideas?

Hello,

I am trying to create a shared folder between my two Windows laptops (a laptop and a netbook) to easy transfer files. I created a shared folder on the netbook and gave it Full permissions. When I try to access it from my Windows laptop (I go to the start menu and type \\ComputerName I get an error message saying

\\ComputerName is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission.

Logon failure: account currently disabled.

Both machines are on the same network so I'm not sure where the error would be? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:Creating a shared folder between 2 windows machines

when you try to access another computer, windows automatically tries to logon using the same user // pass of the person logged in on the client. this error says that that particular user on the server is disabled. if you enable the user on the computer hostign the files and the password for the user matches on both pcs, then the computer may become accessible.

assuming windows 7 is running, i would rather try to setup homegroups for this setup. clickt he link below for more info.

Greetings to all members of this forum. I would like to describe the problem which I mess with.

I have Windows 10 x64 on my laptop Lenovo L450 which I use at office. At office I use Wi-Fi connection and VPN. The problem is I can't reach one folder which is shared locally on other Windows based PC (with turned on/off VPN). It's not because my antivirus (I use Bitdefender Internet Security 2016), and well I tried so many variants: I modified register, changed network share policy and etc. Nothing helped me.

Maybe you can suggest me something? Don't treat me bad, I am just new guy here, and I will update my topic and etc. in case something wrong with it.

We have a Windows 2003 server here which is basically a dummy file share machine. We have a 67GB drive which has folders on it which are shared, and inside are subfolders which have oftentimes different security permissions.

The 67GB drive is nearly full. What is the best way to move one of these subfolders but maintain the security permissions we have?

For example
D:\Users\XYZ
Users is shared as users
XYZ only has access by user XYZ

If we copy the Users folder and paste it to the E:\ lets say, resetting up the share is easy, but all security permissions are lost.

Thanks
 

Answer:Windows 2003 Shared Folder & Permissions

when you move or copy files/folder to another NTFS partion the permissions will be lost. you have to recreate them.

Depending on your disk subsystem.. i would add onther drive to your raid 5 array or create a new raid 5 array. Image the partion to the new disk subsystem.

hi
there is a shared folder. it was created by user A and he shared it with some 8 users. now he is transfered to another department. so he should not be able to access this shared folder but since it is shared with him he can.

how to i remove him from shared folder as he is shown as owner ?

should i just take owner ship of the folder in advanced NTFS permisions and then be able to remove it ?
my concern is that i do not want to disturb the rest of the permissions ?
thanks

Answer:windows 7 removing the owner from shared folder

You should be using user groups in a domain setting.
e.g.
accounting
sales
research

The NTFS permissions should be set one time to allow the proper groups access.

When people leave a department, they can be removed from a group.

Using groups avoids repeatedly changing the NTFS permissions.

By the way, a person can be the owner of folders/files and still not have access to them.
You really need someone who is knowledgeable about making NTFS permission changes. You should not be learning on a live system.

Hi

I have a computer with some shared files on that I my LAN can access. However this is only on the immediate LAN

The computers then all go in to a router which has NAT enabled and connects to the rest of the work network.
I have opened up port 135 through 139 both UDP and TCP etc

How can I add this folder as a network share on the computers outside of NAT (it even has a web address pointing to it that works for the web file server)

any ideas?

Ps I know about the security implications and no I don't want to turn NAT off

I have a Windows 7 Pro Desktop PC and a Windows 7 Home Edition Laptop. I would like to map a drive on the Laptop to a shared folder on the Desktop. In the Network portion of the Laptop it sees the Desktop PC name and under the PC name it shows the Users folder and under that it shows my Username. What it doesn't show are the two folders I have set to share with everyone. These two folders are in the root folder of the C: (main) drive of the Desktop. What do I need to do to see these two folders in the mapping window? Thanks for any assistance.

Answer:Unable to map to a shared network folder Windows 7

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

To avoid a lot of Q & A about your hardware and OS configuration, please click on this link to
Edit System Specs

Filling this out, at least partially, will save a lot of time. Another advantage is when posting a new problem, the person answering can just click the My System Specs link in the bottom of your post. No need to search for the information.

If you have multiple systems just indicate that in the System Specs so that we know why many of the fields are blank.

==============================

Are you able to read/write files in the Public folder on the desktop? If not, it's been my experience the fastest way to get the network sharing going is to be able to read and write files in the already shared Public folder. If you can't do that then you can pull your hair out trying to share other folders.

Hello!
English is not my first languaje, i will do my best.

A client has a computer running Windows 10 Pro that shares a folder to be accesible from MS-DOS based machines (i have no control from them). The MS-DOS program asks for user and password and gets connection to the folder.

The Windows 10 machine was not enought fast, and we decide to change it to a better machine (new machine with i3cpu, 16gb Ram, Windows 7 Pro 64bits).
I setup all configuration the same as was in the old computer:
- computer name
- Workgroup
- user and password
- static ip adress and DNS
- folder shared name (this is in a secondary hdd, moved from old computer to the new)...

Computers with Windows 7 and Windows XP in the same network have Access instantly, all works fine,
but the MS-DOS based machines says: "wrong password" (and is not).

Surfing in the web I found that:
http://ss64.com/nt/syntax-ntlm.HTML

I have setup Windows LAN Manager authentication level to Send LM and NTLM Responses, but the result is the same.


I don't know where is the mistake. Has anyone any idea how can i solve that problem?

I have Windows 2003 Server (AD, file sharing) and I try to install OfficeMate software (MS Access database based software). So I installed OM software then I did folder share as they described here http://www.officemate.net/omkb/attachments/Sharing Folders-GUIDe1490aa8978d4255b616ed15e16cf462.pdf Then I went to the workstation and install OM on it (as admin) then switched to regular user. After this software gives me error about folder/path access. Support tech told me that I don't have full read-write access to the specified folder but I did what they described. I went back to the server and added user by his login to that folder with full access - no luck. I check if that user has read-write access to the folder from the Windows Explorer - I can create/delete file. Everything is fine (OM can run) when I will give to that user admin settings on that workstation.

Any ide what can be done wrong? Thanks

Hello everybody. We have a Windows 2000 server based domain. Recently we installed Windows Server 2003 x64 R2 edition to a new server and added this server to the domain only as a member server. On this w2k3 server we have several shared directories for all domain users. The problem we have is that though everything seems to be working fine, but after some time domain users cannot access those shared folders at all or the server takes a very long time to react. W2k3 server has SP2 and all of the available updates applied. EventViewer does not show any error messages and there seems to be no problem with the server, because when you log on directly everything looks fine the system doesn't crash or smth. Afer restart of the server everything works again for several hours until the problem appears again. What could be causing this problem with shared folders?

Hi

I am currently setting up a standard machine that will act as a template for all other new machines that we are soon to deploy.

This new machine is running Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP 1

We have shared folders on a Windows 2000 SP4 machine which is part of our workgroup.

I can see this computer using the My Network Places and browsing the workgroup on my XP Pro machine. I can then click on that machine and see the shared folders, however, the problem is this:

When I try to access these folders (and I do have permission to), the XP Pro machine hangs and ends up needing a restart.

This problem on ly manifests itself with the XP Pro machines, not any of our Win2K, Win95 or Win98 machines.

Any ideas, solutions?

So I was running Vista Ultimate x64, then I decided to upgrade to Windows 7 with an upgrade iso file.

I had a folder on my desktop containing various movies and tv shows that was shared with the network. It at one point disappeared from the desktop but was still accessible in the network folder of this computer. (While I was running Vista)

I then upgraded, and now I have noticed the folder is completely missing!

It is not in the network folder, on my desktop, or anywhere obvious. I ran searches and it didn't find anything.

I used a program giving me a graphical representation of my hard drive called "Space Monger" and it has a 60GB folder (roughly the size of the movie folder) Entitled "System Volume Information" but the folder does not exist on my computer. Inside the folder are various files with no extension and seemingly random file names. The folder is also hidden and inaccessible.

Windows 7.  When I connect the Windows 7 computers to the network and run the app (which has a File Watcher window) and am watching all 4 computers, I noticed that the File Watcher window of the XP boxes show the files about 2 seconds before the Windows
7 boxes see the files.  What would cause this?  Everything else in the app works as it should.
The apps are running as Administrator on the Windows 7 boxes and XP compatiblility mode.  I have tried it both ways.

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.
