Domain mapped drive permissions
We're having a pretty major issue here with our Domain and a new Windows 7 PC. To give background, we have finally upgraded the last PC in our office to Windows 7 yesterday - the PC belonging to our Finance Director, who wanted to make sure that there were no issues at all before he migrated. I suspect we can all guess what happened...
Anyway, there is a shared drive on a colleague's machine which has permissions set up for INTRANET\<each member of the Finance dept> and INTRANET\<our FD's account>. While he was running on Windows Vista (and not on the domain), this worked like a charm, faking a connection to the domain, yadda yadda. Today, he looked at the shared folder, which he can see, but is unable to edit/create/delete anything within it. He has the exact same permissions as one of the other Finance employees (Full Control), yet it works for her account, but not for our FD. In desperation, I set "Everyone" to Full Control - still our FD can't write/edit/delete anything, and nor can another random non-Finance employee (although, again, they can view the folder and contents).
I'm completely lost at this point, and have our FD breathing down my neck - any ideas? Please? :S
Edit: And typically, the moment I post this I find out what the problem was - there is a difference between Sharing Permissions and Permissions which I was not aware of. Added in Sharing Permissions and *bam!* it was fixed. This can be deleted/locked as appropriate.
