Hi,

I've been fighitng with this issue for a while now without being able to figure it out.

Whenever users try to use files between folders on the servers, they get this error:

"Your internet security settings suggest that one ore more files may be harmful".

I tried setting a GP to add the server ip address as 'trusted'. I tried with server name and share name but still no luck. When I log in with a domain admin account I don't get this problem.

Environment is Windows Server 2012 with a mix of Win 7 and Win 8 computers.

Any help would be appreciated.

Trusted sites will still pop warnings as the default security level is medium. If these *are* your servers then you want to add them to the local intranet zone.

I usually see this when the path is formatted in a way that explorer doesn't realize the UNC is local. DFS namespaces in particular are notorious when the full domain name is used instead of the NetBIOS name. But alas, Microsoft has not improved the automatic local intranet detection in years, so we get this every so often.  Just use group policy to add the resource to local intranet size to zone mappings and you should see the problem go away.
