User gets access denied when trying to access share

I have created a share on my 2003 SBS server.  I created a security group and added a few people to the group.  For sharing permissions, I gave the group full permissions.  For security permissions, I gave the group full control.

When a user who is a member of the group tries to add a file to the share, they get an access denied message.  I cannot figure out what I did wrong.

Have you added the group into sharing>>Permission area?

Yes I did, as I said in the question, for sharing permissions I gave the group full control, and full control for security permission.

Is this the same for all users in the group, or just one? Is the share a root folder or is it within another folder, if it is in another folder, check the permissions on the parent folder.

At first it was within another folder, and I did check the permissions on the folder above, but then I created a new folder off of the root of C.  It is C:\Share.  The user has no permissions to the root of the C drive.  I gave the group full sharing and security permissions to C:\Share (which I shared and called it share).  I do not yet know if it is the other members of the group yet.   So far it is on the one, but I suspect it is all of the users in the group.

Has the User logged off/on to get new group membership?

Can you add the User directly into the share permissions and try?

It seems it was just a matter of logging off and on.  For some reasons I thought the permissions were real time.

When adding a User to a Security Group, the only way this would get updated is to logoff/logon. On the other hand if a Group Policy was changed that could affect this User/Computer then you can sometimes get away with a gpupdate /force - all depends on what type of change.

Always safer to reboot or logoff and on again :-)
