  1. User Accounts / Shared Files


    Hello, I work in a onsite department and one of are clients has a computer in one of their head employees office that they are also using as a server.

    On the server computer they have a folder on his C drive called Shared that other computers inside the network can access. On the shared folder their is several sub folders.


    They have a employee that needs access to only two sub folders that he has read/write permissions to stored inside of the Shared Folder and should not be able to see any of the other folders in the shared folder.


    When trying to set this up I was able to get him access to the Shared folder by mapping a network drive to that location but he could just click Shared in the path directory and see all the folders and files stored in here rather then the two he needs access to.


    To try to resolve this from the Computer they are using as the server I tried to edit the permissions of the shared folder but their was only a everyone user currently.


    My colleague thinks we need to get all of the employees current usernames and passwords for their computers and set up a user from the server computer using this same information so we can remove the everyone group and give each user specific permissions.


    The location I believe is all using Windows 10 computers and I was just wanting to see if that is what we need to do and are going about this the right way as a lot of research I have been doing is showing me a lot of methods I do not think is any longer supported on windows 10.


    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Remove account

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    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.

    Cannot access shared network drive


    I could scream! so much time wasted on this stupid error, as if time is not precious enough!
    It probably would work fine if I could see the other computer! But I cannot see the other computer!
