  1. Cannot access one specific folder on network drive


    Thanks in advance for any help!

    I have an external drive Buffalo Model: HD-LXU3 hooked up to my Netgear R9000 router. On the drive I have about 7 folders. I shared these folders through the router software.

    I am able to access all the folders except 1


    I have tried changing ownership of the folder and it will not allow me. It fails to enumerate.


    I have compared all security and advanced security tabs of all the folders. They all are the same, even the one I cannot access.

    The shares are showing linux ownership as that is what the router is running.


    If connect the external drive directly to my PC then I can access the folder with no problem.

    Thanks again and look forward to getting some help. This has been driving me crazy for months

    :)

    Cannot access shared network drive


    Personally, I wouldnt use Everyone. If anyone hacks into you, they have full access to everything and can demolish everything on your raid. I would rather set up accounts and access separately for each person. That way, I know who did all that damage. In the end with a little extra work, I feel more secure by using Authenticated Users.


    If this helps.
    step 1 create non-microsoft account and without email and address without admin rights
    step 2 share a drive or folder to specific user account (if Everyone is listed, remove it)
    step 3 set security > add Authenticated Users (if more than 1 account) or add specific users
    step 3a remove Everyone from list
    step 3b uncheck full control and write for all items listed except SYSTEM and Admin account.
    step 4 right click Start > Computer Management > System Tools > Shared Folders > Shares ... to verify settings and change anything else. You can also see the number of connections to each share here.

    ?? How do I PW protect Folders in windows

    hmmm?
    Sharing files and folders overview You can share the files and folders stored on your computer, on a network, and on the Web. The method you choose depends on whom you want to share files with, and what computer they will use to access the files.

    When you share files or folders, they are not as protected as they are when you do not share them. People with access to your computer or your network might be able to read, copy, or change files that are in a shared folder. You should always be aware that the files and folders that you share are available to other people and be sure to monitor your shared files and folders on a regular basis.

    Important

    If your computer is not joined to a domain, you can use the Network Setup Wizard to automatically turn file and printer sharing on or off. To start the Network Setup Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Setup Wizard.
    If you both use the same computer

    You can put the files you want to share in the Shared Documents folder. Files stored in the Shared Documents folder or its subfolders are always available to other users on your computer.

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, the Shared Documents, Shared Pictures, and Shared Music folders are not available.
    If both computers are on the same network

    You can share a folder or drive on your computer with others on the network. You can also control whether the files in the shared folder can be modified by other users.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, you will need to set the Access control for the folder or drive after sharing it. For more information, go to To set, view, change, or remove file and folder permissions.
    If you want to share your files online

    You can publish pictures and documents on the Web using the Web Publishing Wizard. The files will be stored in a private, online folder that you manage.

    Step-by-step procedure

    If you don't want others to access your files

    You can prevent other users from accessing your folders and the files they contain. When your computer is connected to a domain, this is called setting permissions for your file or folder. When your computer is connected to a workgroup, this is called making your folders private.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
