I have a Win2003 server. I created a folder and shared it. I am able to map a drive to the share and access it, but I can not create a new sub folder or save a document to the share... I get an access denied. I have gone into the SHARING tab of the shares properties and added my ADMIN group and gave them full control. I then gave full control to EVERYBODY. Still wouldn't work, so I went into the SECURITY tab and added the ADMIN group with full control, still get teh access denied. I then added myself and gave full control, but still get the access denied when tryingto create a new folder or save a document. I am able to open and read existing documents. This is a clean install of 2003. I am not sure what to check next.

1.  leave the sharing permissions to full control for everyone, yes everyone.
2. then set your NTFS permissions (what you see on the security tab of any file/folder) as you would like them
3.  if you are setting BOTH sharing AND NTFS permissions then you have two security mechanisms fighting with eachother.
4.  i'm not sure how big your domain is and how many DCs you have, but give after you make the changes, give things time to replicate
5. also remember that user accounts get their secuirty token at logon time, so log off and back on (after replication has taken place) for the changes you made to take effect.
