server rights issue

I have a clean install of 2003server. I created a group called "Admin Group" and added the appropriate users. I can access the restricted folders, bnut only with read-only access. I also tried adding one of the users to the Administrators group and still have the same problem. I must be overlooking something. Any thoughts?

Check to see if Administrators or Domain Admins have full control over the folders you are accessing.  Also make sure that the share has full control for administrator or Domain Admins

Also Ensure that the users are not members of other groups that are restricted from editing the folders.  Deny takes Presidence over Grant.

Right click the folder and click properties.  Click the security tab and select advanced.  Under the effective permissions tab add one of the user accounts and see what his permissions are.

Does your Administrator account have access to these folders?

I checked the rights for the root of y: and it is set so that everyone has full access. I logged in as administrator on a workstation and cannot even create a new folder in the root. I get an access denied.

Once I went to the root properties and selected the Sharing tab and changed it to everyone everything seemed to work ok.
