    Help!!! (permissions boo boo)

    I managed to un-share our Staff Common this morning...so now unfortuantely all the permissions are buggered.

    Staff were able to add/remove/edit from their Sub folders but not the the Root folder of Staff Common (as i want it kept tidy).

    Staff can currently access it, but cant add to subfolders. I as an admin on my machine cant either which is puzzling me more!!

    My permission edits dont seem to be taking effect

    HELP!

    When you recreated the share did you give staff, admins etc atleast Modify?

    Sounds silly, but check the share permissions are set to everyone read/write. (not security permission)

    Given that its the Staff share I wouldnt give Everyone read/write...

    If you havent already, use NTFS permissions to lock down the root folder i.e. deny write for 'This folder only' on the root and grant secure down the subfolders as required.

    I was talking about the share permissions, not the security/NTFS permissions.

    So was I, personally i dont think users need to see shares if they dont need it and further more it means more locking down has to be done at NTFS level.

    Fair enough. I disagree, but everyone's opinion is valid so long as the result is the same.
