    Morning everyone,

    the jist... warehouse and buying have a shared excel folder on the domain. Given goodsin a share to it, but it wont allow them to save it, only a copy. "Goods in .xls is read only. To save a copy, click ok" Checked their perms and they seem to have full control, the domain local users only have read! Went into AD and right clicking the share there is no security tab. Double click the share and im denied access!

    Thoughts appreciated.

    If your using NTFS and share permissions, then its the most restrictive that takes over. IIRC (havent done that exam yet lol).
    If theres no sharing tab then simple file sharing might be enabled or something.

    1. Make sure the volume is NTFS and not FAT32...

    2. Make sure you have domain administrator permissions not just server operator.

    3. Look for any explicit deny permissions, especially for group memberships.

    4. Look at any inheritted permissions for the folders affected.

    You would be correct on that one kat, SFS is disabled on domains although if you where to look i bet you would notice that the damn thing is still checked lol can be a little confusing.
