Windows 7: permission problems, under security for shared folder

permission problems, under security for shared folder

im trying to share my user folder from across my network,

the win7_x64 machine is set up a sort of a server.
the win7_x32 is the laptop that im trying to obtain write access to.

i have the user files on the d drive on the server, and i have "UserFiles" folder set to share across the network. this works fine.

the problem comes when i try to write into the directory. i have special permissions set on the folder so other users cant cross access each others files.

lets discuss the D:/UserFiles/Wolfdogg directory, its my files on the user drive.

so in the d:/UserFiles directory i have permissions as follows
SYSTEM - full access - files, folders, and sub folders
Administrators - Full Access - folders, sub folders, and files
Authenticated Users - traverse only - this folder only

on the d:/UserFiles/Wolfdogg directory
Administrators - Full access - folders, sub folders, and files
Wolfdogg - traverse only - this folder only
Wolfdogg - full access - subfolders and files only (not this folder)

I have replaced all child objects each time i make changes.

i can get into all my files using wolfdogg credentials, i just dont have write priveleges.
what setting am i missing

Have you set these permissions in both the Advanced Sharing Security Tab and the Security Tab?

no, only in the security tab, haha, even though i always use teh advanced sharing to check the checkmark to share, i simply forgot to look into those permission settings. it appears you hit the nail on the head. the only permissions i see in there are for 'user' and 'administrator' doh! they need to be set in there too dont they..... i think this is how i probably had it in the past, but when i reset them all, i forgot about this.

Try adding the permissions in there as well (Y). This should fix your problem
