Getting Access Denied when trying to create new folders/docs via shortcut

tssi asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-04
I have a file share on one server that is being used for an FTP site and I created a shortcut to the share and placed it on a few internal users desktops. The permissions are correct for the users, as they can access and manipulate with no problems when they browse to the actual folder share. But when they access the share via the shortcut, they get access denied messages when trying to create new folders or documents. I don't understand why.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
