Network / Sharing :: File Permissions And Read Only?

Jun 18, 2013

Two user accounts, both administrator level. I have a file in my documents that my wife's account can READ but cannot SAVE. I've gone in through User Accounts and given her account full permissions (full control with all the boxes checked), but it always reverts back to her not being able to save any file in my directory.

FWIW, I have all accounts on a separate D: drive. Only windows 8 and programs are on C:.

Also, Read only status. I see the dot (not a check) when I select properties from "my documents". I remove the dot, task window comes up and all the file names whiz by. Then, I look and ... again, the dot is present.

What is the purpose of the dot vs the check mark. They seem to have the identical effect on sub-directories and files within sub-directories.

Network / Sharing :: Share To Homegroup Does Not Keep Edit Permissions

Dec 4, 2012

I have two windows 8 computers in the same homegroup.

When I share a folder to the homegroup and give it View/Edit permissions, it changes to View only after a computer restart.

Edit:One more thing, I think it might have something to do with the fact the folders are on a drive defined as a storage space in the storage pool.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 Group Policy Permissions - Microsoft Account

Aug 25, 2014

I recently updated two of my computers to Windows 8.1 and One thing that seems to be a public nuisance is having to use a Microsoft Account to have a syncing onedrive folder. This aside I have been trying to get File/Printer Sharing working between a file server and a client.

With my previous W7 setup I would create custom groups for access to certain file sets and it would all go off without a hitch, the same is true with Windows 8.1 and local accounts. The issue comes in when I try to link a MS account to said local account, at this point it seems to ignore the group permissions. Below is a diagram of the setup and the expected/actual results.

Code: = Windows 8.1 File Server =- Added localuser test1- Added user to administrators group- Link test1 to MSAccount- Verified user is still part of administrators group- Give Administrators Read-Write permission and Security on the relevant share and files= Windows 8.1 Client =- Added localuser test1- Added user to administrators group- Link test1 to MSAccount- Verified user is still part of administrators group

With this setup, if I try to write a file to the share in question, I get an access denied, but if I instead explicitly give test1 Read-Write access to the share then the user can write files as expected. If I unlink the MSAccount from the localaccount then the share works as expected with out the user-explicit permissions. Finally, after I have tested the localaccount is working, if I link the accounts back to the Microsoft Account it once again stops working. It seems like MS screwed the pooch on this one and completely broke it's own group policy permission compatibility.

Network / Sharing :: Can Only Access Shared Items With Read Permission Each Time Start Windows?

Sep 8, 2013

I've set several folders and drives to be shared on the network with read/write permission. The problem is that each time I start Windows, I can only Access the shared items across the network with Read permission, instead of the read/write I originally set, so I have again to right-click > share with > read/write.

Accounts :: Windows 8 Machine Configuration - System32 File Access Permissions

Jul 11, 2014

I'm having trouble with the environment configuration on my new Windows 8 machine, I don't remember running into problems like this on 7, but I can't seem to find much useful online..

I have 4 dll files that need to go into the WindowsSystem32 folder in order for one of our applications to run. This is done through an Advanced Installer package I created, which will not allow the installation unless the user has administrative rights (it deals with Windows Services as well). One of the steps is to copy these 4 dll files, which it apparently does without any errors.

Herein lies the problem.. Technically, the files do indeed exist, as seen in the Bash shell screenshot below:

While they are quite simply not visible through either Explorer or command prompt, even when run as an elevated command prompt. The example screenshot below shows me trying to copy one of these files into the folder. Notice the overwrite file warning and the file listing behind it.

In the above shot, I had already figured out that copying the jacob-1.15-M4-x86.dll dll using the elevated command prompt seems to work, it shows in explorer and the applications that depend on it load fine. How could a file be copied into the folder that no Windows tool can see?

Deleting Corrupt / Read-only File?

Nov 20, 2013

I recently opened a USB drive on my PC and noticed that the drive says to have 0 bytes of space left and the file is read-only. I cannot delete it or format the drive. I have even tried taking ownership of the file through an elevated command prompt where I was faced with the error: "File ownership cannot be applied on insecure file systems; there is no support for ACL's."

Network / Sharing :: How To Disable Password Access To File And Printer Sharing

Feb 6, 2013

I am in the midst of the final steps in setting my my new Win 8 system.

I have a Win XP and Win 8 computer on my home network. I believe that I have set up file and printer sharing correctly. I can access the files and printer on the XP system from the Win 8 system. However, when I attempt to access the Win 8 files from the Win XP system, I get a long delay (about a minute or two) and then it asks me for the User Name & Password. I enter them and then and it works fine.

If I try to print on the printer attached to the Win 8 system from the XP system, I get a printer error unless I have already signed in with the ID & PW when accessing files. It never asks me for an ID & PW before attempting to print.

On the Win 8 system, I have selected "Turn off password protected sharing" in the "Network and Sharing Center/Advanced Sharing Settings".

The Win XP system has previously been correctly sharing files and printers with another XP system for some time and I haven't changed any settings on the XP computer.

Both the XP and Win 8 systems are assigned the same Workgroup name.

Network / Sharing :: File Sharing With Password Protection From Windows 8

Jun 8, 2013

I would like to make a folder share from a tablet with windows 8 with password protected to a laptop of windows 7 and another of vista. I have followed the tutorial of File Sharing - "Share with" & "Stop Sharing" in Windows 8. My PCs have been set in the same workgroup and same user account, network discovery and file and printer sharing turned on. At the first time, it is OK for windows 7. However after some changes of account (delete and create them on both windows 8 and windows 7), it doesn't work anymore with the error from windows 7 "Login failure: user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer" whenever password protected turned on in windows 8 and only OK when password turned off.

Network / Sharing :: File And Folder Sharing?

Mar 11, 2013

On my home network there are Windows 8-A, Windows 8-B and W7 machines. There is no problem networking among these machines except from Windows 8-A to W7. The shared folders on the W7 are displayed on Windows 8-A but if I attempt to click-open any one of them no ID/PW is asked for and the following message is displayed:

"You do not have permission to access . . . . . Contact your network administrator . . . "

Windows 8-A <--> Windows 8-B OK
Windows 8-B <--> W7 OK
Windows 8-A <-- W7 OK
Windows 8-A --> W7 NG

Windows 8-B and W7 are logged in by the same ID and password, but Windows 8-A is logged in by a different ID and PW. I can open any folder of the W7 from Windows 8-A *if* Windows 8-A is logged in by the same ID and PW as for W7/Windows 8-B.

Security Permissions On Network Folder?

Jan 20, 2014

I have a 1TB HDD connected via the network. 90% of the folders on this drive are fine, but a few were created by previous Windows installs.

I needed to delete the folder but it won't let me do so. I've tried fiddling with the security settings but they wont "stick". See the attached for what I mean.

I can't do anything with this folder. I can rename the folder, but everything inside the folder and the folder itself cannot be removed.

Network / Sharing :: Useless PC As File Server?

May 21, 2013

So I have the piece of crap PC known as the Archos 9. Never use it anymore because I got a real laptop.

I just bought a WD My passport 1tb hard drive. So I want to use it as an external network drive.

I would leave my Archos 9 in a corner somewhere with the HD connected,with file sharing. It is touchscreen and has only a built in mouse. No keyboard.

How would I be able to set it up? It overheat sometimes and lags like hell. Has no Fan which might make it suitable for being in a dark corner

Any OS's that don't strain the system a lot and are not outdated? I heard of some other OS's that do this really well,with not much power usage.

Network / Sharing :: How To Share File From Vista To 8.1

Feb 4, 2014

I'm having trouble sharing files from my Vista Laptop to my new Win 8.1 laptop. I can get into my shared public folder but nothing else. I want to be able to get at anything in my C drive but it says I don't have permissions. I have a home wireless network but I also hooked them together with an Ethernet cord and both networks are showing.

Last week I was running into a window asking for network credentials on the Vista laptop (but I didn't know what it meant because I never had a password ). This time I see the folders I've shared but can't get into them except Public folder.

Network / Sharing :: How To Share File With Win7 Machine

Aug 18, 2013

I had to buy a new laptop that I could take with me to work, and of course it runs Windows 8 (which I absolutely hate, incidentally). I decided it would be nice if I could share files with my primary computer when I'm at home, which is a desktop running dual-boot Win7 and Ubuntu.

I initially set up a homegroup, but whenever I try to access laptop files from my desktop it always pops up with a "enter network username and password" dialog. I tried looking up solutions to that but so far haven't found anything that works. I made sure the clocks on both computers were the same, and I made sure that all network settings were the same on both, including the setting "do not use user accounts/passwords," but I'm still having the issue.

So, what's the best way for me to share/sync files on my laptop with the desktop's files while I'm at home?

Network / Sharing :: Setting Up Shared Folder For File History

Apr 18, 2013

I need configuring file history. I want to have it store files on a shared folder in a local hard rive but I want that folder to be inaccessible to other computers on my home network.

Now its fairly easy to set up a shared folder on a local drive and store file history there but the problem is that other computers can see all my files. I tweaked the sharing permissions on my folder so I removed the 'Everyone' user and put in my user name (which is an admin) and set the permissions to full control. Despite setting the permissions to only my user account, other computers are still able to open the shared file history folder and view and edit its contents.

I can't disable file sharing all together because then it would defeat the purpose of what I am trying to do and also I have another computer on my network store its files on my computer through file history.

Network / Sharing :: Restarted XP Computer Now Cannot Access File On Windows 8

Sep 15, 2014

I had to restart a computer on our office network which uses Windows XP on Wednesday, September 17, 2014. Now I cannot access a file on a computer which uses Windows 8 unless I tell the Windows 8 computer to let EVERYONE access the file - which I don't want to do. A computer using Windows Vista on the same network has had no problems. I've created a new username on the Windows 8 computer and given the problem computer that name but still no access. I've enabled read/write file sharing and given the problem computer full access permissions but still can't get in. I removed all Microsoft updates that had been installed four days before the problem occurred on the Windows 8 computer and recovered the Windows XP system to the day before the problem occurred - still can't get in.

Network / Sharing :: Unzipped Files Blocked From Preview In File Explorer?

I often unzip compressed folders sent to me by email containing several pdf files. When opened in file explorer the preview pane is blocked.

I have to right click and select properties, then click unblock button individually on each file if I want to preview them in the preview pane.

Any way I can set an option either to not automatically block these files when transferred from compressed email attachment to the folder?

Or any way I can use the parent directory and unblock all the files in all the subfolders at once?

Can I do something in Credential Manager to fix this?
