Network file open as read only.

It's funny to ask but I am having trouble to set write access to file server 2008. User have a read access but not the write access. Not sure what causing wrong.

1. Shared this folder
2. Set the user as a "contributor" in file sharing
3. Set in Security as Modify, read and write access
4. Checked Effective Permission & it seems ok but users still don't have access to write. I can't think of at the moment is there anything else causing wrong? How to diagnose this issue?  

Thanks to All in advance.

It's really strange I setup full read & write access to user. But when user try to update files it's getting error message: "Cannot create the *.txt file. Make sure the file & path are correct. Another waring show that " you do not have permission to save in this directory.  Thanks.

Add the user in administrator group

go to manage > local user and groups>go to groups>Administrators

open and add user >save
Then try again.

I don't want to add those users to administrator group. I only want them to give access to specific forlder for read, write and delete files. Thanks.

I been in IT industry for 5/6 years and I am pretty sure my share & permission settings is ok. Just wondering is there anything in my VM (win 2008 Server) which causing issue? Please help me if you have same experience in VM. It's nothing to do with my share & permission settings on folder. I think it's something to do with VM which stopping to access write share. Thanks.
