Server 2003 Security Permissions Not Working

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have created a new shared folder (mapped drive) on our data server to store documents.  I am assigning security permissions to some people, but it doesnt seem to be taking.

For example, I have given myself full control of the folder however if I try to make a new document in the folder, I get a access denied message.  This is happening for all the other people also.

Not sure what the issue is since I do this kind of stuff all the time.  I just cant get it to work for this new shared folder I am trying to set up.
