Access problems with data restored from a W2K Server to a 2003 server

Hello,

I recently had a problem with a failed W2K fileserver and the only replacement PC was a Windows 2003 server.  I restored the data using Backup Exec 8.6, and while the data restored successfully, users now have problems accessing this data.  They have read-only access, but cannot create new documents, or even modify\save old documents.

I have tried a variety of things (I did a search on this web site), including taking ownership of a folder, reapplying the permissions, modifying the Read Only attributes, but nothing is working.  There is approximately 190GB of data, so I don't fancy a folder by folder solution!

As you can imagine, this is causing my users severe difficulties.

Hopefully someone can help me!

There are two type of permissions: share level and ntfs level. Did you check both? 'cause if at NTFS level they have change permissions, but read at share level, they'll have read.

Hi AndresM, thanks for your speedy response!

They have read at share level - If I change this to full control, will the permissions already set at NTFS level then set the level of permission they actually get?

Thanks very much.

Yes, if you change the share to change permissions or full control, then NTFS permissions will prevent them for deleting files if they don't have to.
Example:
share: change , ntfs: read -> they will have read access
share: change , ntfs: change-> they will have change access
