After upgrading to a new server (same name) previous "shared" (map shared drives) user can see and copy files but cannot delete file (not created by them). Just to make sure we redid the drive mapping but to no avail. Any suggestions would be appreciated. (checked 'Full Control', 'Change' and 'Read') MS Windows XP Professional

It's perhaps because filesystem has changed( from FAT32 to NTFS - and therefore you have to set properly permissions on file system level),
or your security permissions are not the same as on your old server...

Also Check to make sure "everyone" has full control on the "Share" permissions then let NTFS permissions govern.

Right click the folder that contains the files.
Properties.  Security.  Advanced.  Owner.  Highlight either administrator or administrators.  Place a check mark in the box "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects".
Click ok.  It should make the administrator owner of all the files in that folder.
Now close the security window and lets do it again.
Right click the folder that contains the files.
Properties.  Security.  Now you should be able to add the appropriate Security group or individual to the list of users.  Give them modify permissions leaving full control for the administrators.

Let us know how you fare.
