    Hmm I have restored our Staff shared resources folder and now staff can't write to it

    After our near heart attach inducing server failure over the last few days we now have another much smaller problem. As my brain is a bit fried, could someone tell me why I have the following problem.

    Our staff shared resources is d:\resources\staff on our server. The folder is shared out as resources and staff have read access to the share. Then in the sub folders the staff have everything except full control in the security settings.
    however the staff cannot write to the folders.

    Have I messed up here some how, I really can't see the wood for the trees.

    thanks

    They need change permissions on the share as well.

    have you checked the individual files permissions.

    I suspect the top level folder they have write permission to, but all restored files don't.

    right click on the top level folder and edit the permissions and tick "Propagate to all files and subfolders" (not sure on the exact wording, but something like that)
