I have just set up a new user on our SBS 2011 server.

For some reason he does not have permissions to a specific folder share.
He has all the same settings for group membership as another user who can access the share.

When I look at the Advanced security settings - Effective permissions, the users has all the permissions ticked!

Are you checking the permissions on the share or on folder security?

Hello,

Open the SBS Console and click on shared folders.  Double click the folder and check that the user has the correct permission in there (this is the share permissions not to be confused with the NTFS permissions)

If you've recently updated the share permissions then ask the user to log out and back in again for them to apply.

The share is set to Everyone with full rights.

I logged in on another PC and the share worked. It seems to be specific to a particular PC. What would cause this?

Add the user specifically into the share permissions and restart their PC.  Confirm if its still a problem.

Also, I would suggest removing the everyone group and replacing it with the authenticated users group - this will make the share more secure.

I would think the problem is not do with File Sharing and also permission if it works with another Domain computer.

Does it work if logged in as another user on that machine?
