I had a share that was setup with permission for Domain Users on a windows server 2008.  Everyone could access it.  We wanted to allow only certain users to access the folder.  I removed the "domain users" from the list and added the individual users, about 80 of them, this worked for almost everyone.  there are 3 users, who have contributor rights, that can not open the network share.  I ve tried promoting them to co owners and still it doesn't work.

Any ideas?

Make sure that they are accessing using UNC path and also check the effective permission which applies to them.
