Windows 7 C drive

By clarkd038 ·
I have a few users that cannot save any items directly to their C: drive. It states the user doesn't have the appropriate privelages. I have given the user local admin rights, and also had her take ownership of the folder/ subfolders. This still will not let her save items in the C

I have done these tasks on another computer and it worked for that user. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Does it save if you use "Admin"?

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to Windows 7 C drive

If so then make another "User" account and then delete the old one, then do a test.

Hope this is of help to you.

Just a question or two here

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Windows 7 C drive

Where on the network is the computer trying to save?

And how was this set to save to the remote Location?

Your answer will be in that setting to the remote location be it in a Group Policy or Active Directory as to why this is happening.

Check the security settings

by NexS In reply to Windows 7 C drive

On the Local C

Make it so that all users have write access to the hard drive regardless of the local group they're in.

Hope it helps.

You misunderstand

by NexS In reply to Security

Do not raise the particular user's privileges to full control. Give "All Users" or "Domain Users" or "Everyone" modify/full control.

Have you learned nothing

by santeewelding In reply to You misunderstand

From discussions of God?

Parade to me again your proclamation about the understanding of another and I will rip you another *** hole. You will be debilitated to the point where you cannot raise a thumb up or down.

You seem to also, other than jump to conclusions, not read full posts...

Either that, or you ignore them.

Young sir: I read every word.

In particular, yours.

Explain which proclamation about the understanding of another seemed to have passed you as questionable.

But parading, as you've noted, was directed to, not only you, but all our friends here at TR!
