    Saving to network drive error. Please hlep!!!!

    I have a network with windows 7 machines that connect to a windows server 2008 domain. When the users try to save files to their dropbox(this is a shared folder on the server) folder they get an error message that says "you don't have permission to modify this network location". The odd thing is the files actually save to that location, but when I log in to my administrator account and try to view the files in the that folder, the files are all listed but when I open them the files are empty. Any ideas?

    Sounds like they have write but not append/write extended permissions.

    Review the permissions on the folder/share for the users.

    They have both of the permissions you have mentioned. It will give them that error message, but then when I tired to save it again it ask do I want to replace the file and if i click yes it says access denied contact your administrator.

    Actually in the shared permissions it shows the authenticated users with full control. In the security permissions they have write and in the NTFS permissions they have list folder, create files/write data, create folders/append data, write attributes and write extended attributes permissions.
