Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

For any share you always have two levels of access/permission to configure:

1. At the share level (right-click->properties->sharing->permissions)

This configures whom can Read, Change or Full Control over the content of that share;

2. At the folder level (right-click->properties->secutiry)

This defines the level of access to the contents of that specific folder.

In general terms, this means that a user can have full control for a specific shared folder, but if at the share level it only have Read permissions, there will be no way of that user be able to create even just a text file.

    Hi, this is because the File Screens is active to deny all .exe file. go to File server Resource Manager + File screening Management. that allows you to restrict what kind of files users save to their home folders and other shared network folders. Fausto Mateus
