Can't copy files to the server

By kfrost ·
I have a Windows 2003 for Small Business server. I have shared out a folder on that server so that people can save files to this specific folder. I put everyone as a user for the folder that is shared out. When I try and save a file to the folder I get "Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not in use". Both of those suggestions are not the issue. It has to do with some security setting that I'm overlooking. Any help with be greatly appreciated.

Check the share and NTFS settings.

By default the share permissions are Everyone Read Only. You have to add change is you want them to be able to save files there. Click the permissions button on the share tab.
If that is set correctly you'll need to look at the security tab and verify that the correct groups have write permissions to that folder. Verify that the domain users group has this access.

Hope this helps.

The one spot I forgot to check permissions for was what was holding me back. I went into the properties of the folder than to permissions and added the users there and now it works.
