We have standard users that need to set up file shares on their local machines for other users to access.  Currently they get a Network Error that cites they do not have permission to access the resource.  

How do i open up these permissions on SBS 2011?

Thanks

Sharing local folders is not a great idea, for several reasons,
Backups of those files aren't being done.
That particular PC must always be left on.

That said,  there shouldn't be an issue sharing a folder on a domain workstation for all to see and use.

Just have to make sure that the share permissions come from the domain and not the local workstation.

Understood on best practices issues.  But that has never been how my company has operated and i must press on accordingly.  

This particular case in point we have software developers and testers that are compiling nightly builds on their systems.  These directories then in turn need to be accessed by others.  

We are using Windows 7 Pro.

That did it, thanks so much.  We thought the "Everyone" entry in the first half of the process would have handled it.  Good to know about the "domain users" as well.
