Windows 10 permissions problem
« on: February 18, 2020, 12:11:48 PM »
On a network, a folder (schools 2020) is shared on the network and is visible on other computers

The problem that has arisen is that the network computer cannot create a new folder or copy files to a shared folder

Looking at Permissions, as far as I can figure, it is correct

Can a Windows 10 guru suggest a solution?

Thank you

Are they all on a domain or on a workgroup ? And on the same domain/workgroup ?
Thanks

Have you checked the security settings on the harddrive containing the shared folder.

The workgroup is the same for all PCs
The HDD is visible
The user on the main machine has a login and password
From the remote computer, when I access the HDD on the other machine, I am prompted for a login and password

Which are the security settings?

Go into Windows Explorer and browse to the folder, then right-click on the folder and select "Properties".
Then click on "Security" tab


Check the permissions there.

Write
List folder contents
Modify

From what I recall the guest account has to be enabled and allowed access over the network in the group policy settings

Also, there are 2 types of permissions, NTFS and Share

Thanks guys, that worked fine.  I was able to place shortcuts on the desktop of the one remote computer (FRONT_1) pointing to the folders on the main one (GAIL) - which is to where new photos are copied

Another problem has surfaced at the same house.  It is a friend who runs a photo studio, taking school pictures of the little darlings there

There are 4 computers, all running Windows 10 and on the same workgroup

The main machine is named GAIL and there is a password to log in.  I fitted a new 4Tb HDD and 8Gb RAM to this machine, which necessitated a re-install of Windows 10 Pro

The other machines are named FRONT_1, WORKROOM_1 and WORKROOM_2

The machine GAIL can see all 4 computers under Network

However, machine WORKROOM_2 can only see FRONT_1 and WORKROOM_1 (and itself of course) on the network and not GAIL
I can ping GAIL from WORKROOM_2

I have checked this:



to no avail

Its a slightly earlier version of Windows 10 on WORKROOM_2, the one without Homegroup

Some more suggestions would be most welcome

Have you typed the path or server name in the address bar? If you can ping it surely you should be able to access it.

Right-click the network or Wi-Fi icon in the system tray area of the Windows taskbar and select "Open Network and Sharing Center."

Click the "Change advanced sharing settings" link in the left pane.

 What is the "Turn off network discovery" option. ...
