User is Unable to Create New Folder on Network Drive
Posted on 2009-04-08
I'm helping a friend out with his network setup in his home office. The server is Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition (SP2). Problem is that I have no experience w/ Server 2003. His workstation is running Windows XP Pro. There is a directory on the U drive (labeled 'users on 'Wdp3k01') of the server where he can save and retreive files. However, when he tries to create a new folder anywhere on this directory, he gets the message, "Unable to create the folder 'New Folder.' Access is denied."
When I go to the server and browse the directory using Windows Explorer, I right clicked on his folder, went to properties and clicked on the Security tab. His name is listed there under the Group or User Names. The Permissions are all checked "Allow" except for Special Permissions which is grayed out. I would think that would allow him to do anything to that directory, including creating new folders?
Thanks in advance.
