    Permissions on your simsroot/sims drive/s: drive

    Yes yes.. the old chestnut. Something that has been asked many a time before but never answered 8)

    My S: drive (which is where the SIMS data files are stored) is configured for everyone to have full access. Currently this sits on the old admin server so it's only a handfull of staff that could potentially make it go very wrong. Now I am talking about NTFS permissions here - surely it can't be right that whoever uses SIMS needs the "modify" flag on all those files? :?

    Re: Permissions on your simsroot/sims drive/s: drive

    It certainly shouldn't be the case, but it is. When the SIMS client updates itself on a PC, it also writes files to S:\SIMS\... This is a major bug in my opinion and I've raised it with Capita on a couple of occasions. If access is limited to Read only, the error messages appear, usually relating to a PDF file which the update routine is attempting to write to.

    You should certainly limit access by using a specific group rather than using Everyone though. The simplest approach is to create a SIMSUSERS group and add the appropriate users to it and then use it to grant Modify access to S:\SIMS.
