  1. Folder Specific to one user shows up for all users


    I have a WIndows 2012 R2 server, on that server I have about 10 users. My desktop computer is Windows 10, my boss' computer is Windows 10. We are both users on the network. I am trying to share a folder with only him and none of the other employees. I have gone to Properties, Sharing, advanced sharing, checked share this folder, then gone to permissions, I removed everyone and added him and me with full control.

    The dang folder is showing up on every computer on the network and they all have access to it and open and change anything in the folder.

    No matter what I have tried I get the same result. Hopefully someone here can have an answer on how to fix this. I had no problems with this on my old computer and only he and I could see the folder. That computer suffered a hard drive failure so we are working with a new machine.

    All other net work functions see to be working fine. But then we share pretty much everything else.

    :)

    How to merge user accounts in Win 10

    Go File Explorer, C;, Users. One of them is the one you want everything. Expand to show all folders under it.

    Then go to the next user expand, click on a folder. It now shows all of the sub-folders and file Drag these to the folder under the first user.

    When this is done close the second user and then open the third user and do it again. Do it for all that are needed.

    At the end check the first user and see if the files you need are there. If they are you may nor nee the other users and you may want to delete them there in File Explorer.

    I installed Windows DVD Player for Windows 10 But It Does Not Show Up

    Maybe it downloaded in a "zipped-file",those usually end up in %Temp% folder,type that in

    cmd,or run..R.click on a zipped folder,select "extract all" extract to a user folder that you can locate,

    my music,or similiar..If no show,redownload,set the download to a specific user folder..

    Also,if it was installed,open cmd,type: services.msc in msc scroll thru,if located,double click on it,start

    service,set to auto-start...

  6. Alright I have managed to set the permissions now so that while the file shows on all the computers on the network, however, even the people I gave permission to are unable to see it.

    I have no idea how I did that of if it is a step closer or a step further away. I have to be missing something really simple

    The people that are supposed to see it get a message that they don't have permission to see folder.*Mad

    Yes that is exactly how I did the sharing. I have done this multiple times (I have unshared and tried again). Like I explained I have given permission for full control to the person that needs it but they are denied access saying they don't have permission to access the resource. I tried adding a different person giving them full control but they get the same message just as a test.

    Do I need to restart my computer and or the server after making these changes to the permissions is that needed?

  9. bump - does anyone have any ideas on this? I have tried restarting all the machines involved. No matter who I add for permissions they cannot access the file, it says they don't have permission.

    If this is an Active Directory environment then all that is needed is to right click on the folder you wish to share select the Share tab > Advanced Sharing > Permissions. Remove the Everyone group and add the domain users and specify their permissions. The thing to remember when dealing with remote access (sharing) is both share and ntfs (local permissions on a folder) come into play. The rule is the most restrictive permissions always win. So if a user has deny locally to that folder and allow in the share permissions they will be denied access.

  12. Yes active directory. The user everyone was removed and a specific user added and also added under permissions. This all worked fine previously but the original computer had a failure and this is being set up on a new
    Computer. The files being shared to everyone work fine and this file will work if shared with everyone, just not if it's shared with specific users no matter who the user is.
