Office 2010 gets Access Denied saving files
Posted on 2011-02-15
SBS2008, patched up to date. A shared folder with loads of subfolders has permissions set for a user group so that they may open and change/save files, but cannot delete the files or folders, or move files or folders.
The user group has Read & Execute, Read & Write permissions only. All the clients are Win 7 or XP with Office 2003. This works.
New PCs with Office 2010 cannot save files (Word & Excel). They get an error message "Access Denied. Contact Your Administrator".
Seems to be an Office 2010 issue, as they can open Word docs in Wordpad and save them OK.
If I give the user group the Modify permission then they can save OK, but can also move & delete files.
Can anyone suggest why Office 2010 would cause this behaviour?
