I have mapped a 2TB USB drive to my SBS 2008 computer. I believe I have shared the drive and have designated everybody will all  permissions. However, all users have read-only access unless the user is also a domain administrator. How can I fix this? No one can get any work done. Urgent!

Keep in mind that Windows treats SMB share permissions and NTFS permissions separately. The most restrictive permission wins, so you must check BOTH.

Depends. Could be an inheritance issue, depending on where in the folder structure you are trying to work. Could be the activity you are trying to do (the second screengrab does not show full control, just implies it), could be a deny permission from another group. Deny always supersedes allow.

I got it working. The actual folders I wanted to share were beneath E:\ and apparently sharing E:\ does not let users map sub-folder. I went to the sub-folders I wanted to share and set the sharing and permissions on those. Then it worked. Comments?
