pagefile.sys error

By RBobcat ·
After adding a client to my system (1 Server, 10 Clients) and trying to map a network drive on the client, the server tells me I can't map that network drive. The system did let me map 1 drive on the server but not the second drive.
After going tothe server to check the permissions on the problem drive I noticed it did not show that particular user so I added the user to the permissions. Every time I tried to add that user and click OK I get and error:
"The following error occured applying security information to G:\pagefile.sys".
"The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."
Even after closing all resources to make sure nobody is logged on I still get the error
Any Help
Thanks

pagefile.sys error

pagefile.sys is always going to be in use if windows is loaded. It is the temporary or vitual memory file for windows. I assume that the user doesn't need access to the root of the drive because I doubt that any needed data would be in the root of the system drive. If this is true, then try adding the permission to the next level of folders.
ie, instead of giving permission to "g:" give it to "g:\data"

Still didn't work, I ended up removing the pagefile from the G drive altogether. I inherited this system about four months ago and I'm not sure the reasoning behind set up the pagefile on both the C and G drive

Check the permissions on the actual G: drive, and make sure that the System Account has Full Control permissions.

The System Account was set to full. I ended up removing the page file altogether
