Cannot make changes to folder not permissions

I am setting up data server for windows server 08

I added the role of data server, and everything going well...
I have a laptop, and I do not log into the network, but local computer and then access the network drives by adding the pc to the network.
I have been able to access all the folders on the network just fine when on the Windows 2k domain. I moved this folder to the server 08 and that is when the problems started.

I moved this folder, and gave specific permissions to
domain administrator
my domain account
the other it dept users acct

with all of them full access...
When attempting to add a file, or edit a folder, it is saying I don't have permission to do so.

What in the world is going on?

Thanks in advance.

You want to check the permissions on the file...not just that you gave users permissions to it, but the type of permissions (read/write/modify)

Also check that the folder that the folder is in has specific share rights. Could be that the inheritance didnt propogate correctly, so check higher and lower level folders as well.

how are you accessing the folders? just browsing to them? If you are logged on locally and if your not mapping to the folders using your network credentials you wont be able to access the folder unless you add the "Everyone" to the nt and NTFS permissions.

I would add the EVERYONE option to the list but only want specific people accessing the folder.

I gave the users listed all red/write/modify permissions. the folder is a root folder of the drive. I checked and found that the security set on the drive itself was set to read.... I changed that and it worked. but I have another problem, and not sure if i should start a new thread, but it has something to do with this issue.

I am accessing this same folder located on server 08 from a computer running windows 7. I open folder, and able to see all contents. I then attempt to create a folder within that folder, and a message appears saying "Could not find this item" which includes a path to the parent folder mentioned above. It gives me an option to try again, or cancel. I click try again and the folder is created just fine.

weird issue...
I would think it has to do something with permissions for that location.

But I cant give you a definitive answer or resolution for this one... : /
