Permissions for scan to file

I am currently trying to setup our office scanner/copier/printer to be able to use the scan to file function that it supports. I have created a network share that has everyone - full control on the folder. I have setup the "shared" scan folder in the menu of the scanner and the scanner uses SMB to use our netwrok path. This function works fine if we provide credentials, is there a way that we do not need to have the machine provide credentials since "everyone" has full control on the network location folder? Our client machines are using Windows 7 and our copier is a Toshiba e-studio 233 series.

This is not an answer to your question, but something to be aware of if you are not already.  Our university policy disallows saving documents on the internal harddrive of the office scanner/copier/printer when using scan to file (you must use scan to email instead).  This is due to security concerns - any file saved to the hard drive is a potential leak - anyone can simply pull the harddrive.

Yeah we are going to disable that option to save to local hard drive, thank you for the heads up though! I was just wondering if we have to create a domain user name for the device to access the network path.

Ours has an http interface and uses our mail system to send all files.
