External Drive Not Mapping
Posted on 2011-05-03
I have a SBS2003 and a mix of XP and Windows7 Pro workstations. I have an external drive hooked up via USB to my server for Job Photos (P:) and I want the users to be able to copy new photos to the drive. On the drive itself, I have one folder called "XXX Job Photos" and it is shared, the security shows that Users, Everyone and Administrators have "full control". When I go to map to the folder, the drive doesn't even show up, so mapping to it isn't an option. I can use windows explorer to browse to the folder, but when I try to copy anything it tells me that I don't have permission. So really two questions: One, why doesn't the drive show up when I try to mapit, and two, why can't I copy new files to t when all the permissions report "full control" Any thoughts?
