local non-admin account cannot write to several external hard drives
I have a non-admin user who needs to write to different external hard drives all the time. Yes, I can give the user security rights on the external hard drive individually. However, the user will need me to do this everytime unless I give the user admin rights. This is not an option.
So far I have tried the following and have failed:
-removed the user from everyone group (assuming the user was inheriting a right that was preventing him from writing the external hard drive)
-added the user to the power users group
-added the user to secpol.msc > local policies > User Rights Assignments > Take ownership of files or other objects (i believe this would work for interal files but not external files such as external hard drives)
any suggestion is much appreciated.
