    Problem downloading MP3 to H:\ drive

    This is a weird one!

    A user is trying to download an MP3 from the following site using Internet Explorer 9 :

    Bird Sound Effects

    When they right click the MP3 link (Feeding Ducks for example) and select 'Save Target As', they then click their network drive (H:\) which is mapped to \\fileserver\areas$\username

    After clicking 'Save', the file doesn't save but the Save As dialog box comes back up again, click 'Save' again and the box goes away and doesn't come back but the file still hasn't saved.

    However, save to C:\ drive or USB drive and the file saves fine!

    Also tried saving in 'My Documents' which is redirected to the same user area path with no joy.

    Any ideas as I have no idea what is causing it!

    There's your answer - permissions. You should always allocate users Full Control to their home areas.
