Have you checked your account in the filezilla server to make sure that account has read/write to that folder?

what are the security settings on D:?
when you say you can save files on C, are you talking about c:\users\yourusername\documents\ or c:\users\yourusername\downloads?
windows 8/8.1 has some "features"

from the command line run icacls d:\ and d:\path\directory\to\where\you\want\the\files

It is a persmissions issue. compare the icacls c:\ to icacls d:\

Can you create folders on d: drive? Do so, then see whether you can write with filezilla into that folder.
I think the issue is that windows 8.1/.....

I created a test folder ok.. but cannot get filezilla to write into it just a 0 byte file

I have an external drive and I can write to folders there ok

arnoldCommented:
Please post the results for icacls c: and icacls d:

or if you prefer, run icalcs /? and it will explain the meaning of notations after the group/user

Do they look the same, i.e. the same groups, users have the same settings?

arnoldCommented:
Often an external drive has everyone full access.
use icals to compare the external drive's settings to the d:\ drive.

Etiqueta obligatoria\Nivel obligatorio alto:(OI)(NP)(IO)(NW)

/setintegritylevel I think is missing on your D: drive.

this is the restriction preventing your filezilla app from writing into D:

I typed this:

I know it is in Spanish..

Got this

The integrity level is medium and does not need to be adjusted. If icacls does not display one, it's always medium. (If you like, you can verify this by downloading the tool chml.exe). Since medium is lower than high (=alto) which is what c: has, d: is less restrictive than c: - so the problem will be something else.
But: first make sure you are indeed saving to the root of c:/of d: - because if not, then we'd need to look at the ACLs of the folders you are talking about and not of the root folder.

Also, for a quick test, start your FileZilla elevated via rightclick-option "run as administrator" and see if it works, then.

I think BUILTIN\Usuarios:(OI)(CI)(F) should let you write there.

icacls /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)Low

What is the same report for the external drive?  It likely has everyone OI CI F

I am running:

icacls d:\ /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)Low

It si sort of frozen

It came back.. but the same problem...

Have you run out of ideas?

Or what should I type exatñy and where?

arnoldCommented:
Ideas are plenty. The issue is not clear to me.

Not sure what is preventing this.  Using procmon from sysinternals.com ( redirect to tech net.microsoft.com/sysinternals.)

This is a tool you can use to see what is causing the denial.

As was pointed out, often the security restrictions on the C drive are higher more restrictive than on d:.

The suggestion earlier to run FileZilla as administrator mcknife will be useful if it too will be denied write access.

Done...to no avail.

arnoldCommented:
What do you mean? Running as admin also rubs into the write to drive d: also?

robrodpAuthor Commented:
Right... As administrator behaved the same I can copy from c: to d:. But can't even download files from a browser. Now, excel files are saved ok.

I could give you access via teamviewer

Is your filezilla the current version, by the way?
Does it happen only for your user or for another (test-)user as well?

arnoldCommented:
I think uac is kicking.

When you say you can save to c:\ what directories and check their settings.

Adding the missing entries from c to d.

What is d: currently being used for?  Trying to make sure a suggestion to fix this issue does not mess up with a more important functionality.

You are right I am sort of desperate.

arnoldCommented:
Is there an issue with saving the downloads to C and then transferring them to where you want them to be?
UAC will often mark the downloaded items as "insecure" and to run, you would be prompted to confirm that you are aware and that it is safe.

Are you trying to download such a massive set of data that your C:\ download folder can not handle?

You could on a directory on d:\some_directory mimic the permissions you have on c:\users\downloads and that should let filezilla save to that location.
