Network Shares only accessible when 'everyone' has full control - Server 2012

Last Modified: 2015-03-30
I have created an Administrator account for myself on the Server 2012 box and shared a folder that I have given Administrators full access to. I get 'access denied' every time I try to map a drive to the share with those credentials. If I open the rights up to 'everyone', I can then map with no issues. Where is my happy medium here?
