Can't rename files that have full control
Posted on 2013-01-22
We are having a problem with a select number of users who can no longer overwrite existing files on their Home drives.
We made a change to the NTFS permissions to prevent "Everyone" from listing the folder contents of other peoples home drives.
This has caused a number of users to no longer have the ability to rename or overwrite existing files on their Home drives even through they have full control.
The really strange thing is that if you log onto another computer as the same user, it works correctly. This points to a problem with their PC.
I've already tried a few obvious things already:
Reversing the file permission change doesn't fix the problem.
Tested by applying "Everyone" full control but same thing
Problem exists on other shared drives where no changes were made
Rebooted the PC,
Rejoined the domain
No sign of any "deny" permissions
Problem only exists for a few users - perhaps 4 or 5 out of 150.
All clients are Windows XP SP3 and the file server is Windows 2008 R2 SP1
Any ideas of what else to try?
