    Windows 7 permission error

    Hi,

    Trying to update the client pc's to windows 7. Whenever a non administrative user tries to copy a file to a usb device we get the following error "windows 7 you'll need to provide administrator permission to copy this file network"

    I have disabled UAC with no effect?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Ricky

    Is this a domain connected workstation? Windows 7 and 2008/2008 R2?

    I ran into a similar issue UAC was disabled/enabled, but the registry key wasn't changing accordingly, and I ended up having to edit the value.

    Just checking: Is the USB stick formatted as NTFS? If so, does it have file permissions set to allow non-admins to write to it.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the replies,

    Its a 2008 r2 domain and the workstation is windows 7 32 enterprise with roaming profiles. I created a shortcut to UAC and its off.
    Its formatted as fat32 and can delete on other computers.

    Thanks
    Ricky

    Do you get this error because you're trying to copy from a network/mapped drive to usb?

    Is it just one USB device or have you tried with several different models? Is it just the one Windows 7 machine?

    Sorry, just feeling around in the dark here.

    If you disconnect the workstation from the domain (properly demote it to a workgroup) and test a USB stick as a local admin and then a local standard user, does this work?

    If yes, re-promote the workstation to the domain, but create a separate test OU with little or no GPOs applied. If no, then it could well be registry corruption/permissions problem or a system file problem. As all your workstations are from the same image, it would explain why they all have the same problems!
