Permissions in Public folders

By cccondo ·
At our workplace we have public folders with a contacts list in it. Everyone can access and make changes to the contacts except for one person who can access the contacts but cant do any editing? Why is this and how do I fix it?

It is because that single person is not authorized to make changes so they are restricted from making changes.

If that's how it was setup it's working correctly and there is nothing to fix.

If it's not what was originally intended we'll need to know a lot more about the Setup, the Topology of the LAN and so on not to forget the OS's in use. Before we can Begin to start helping you.

But the reality is somewhat slower depending on several things but the most important is the Read Speed of the HDD and the Buss Speed of the computers involved.
