When I am trying to share one of the folder from Windows 2003 system it gives me an error as, “cannot share the folder as the user is not allowed to use”.
I want to use the folder and share some documents, so anyone please guide me on this error.
Problem occurs when sharing folder through network
There is an option in Windows 2003 of denying users in a particular permission in sharing files. In other words you need to be aware of what kind of permission you are giving to other users and also what kind of permission other users give you in accessing their shared files.
I just want to ask if what kind of sharing permission you chose in sharing your folder?
Sharing files or folders are administered through the My Computer or Explorer and permissions can be set on a share in the "Share Permissions" tab.
There are three options in sharing a folder or a file: Read, Change and Full Control. If you chose only "Read" option, the other user can only view the file but cannot change or edit it. In "Change" option, there is a permission to read, add, edit or delete a certain file. If you chose a "Full Control" option, other user can perform any changes or options in your file. The other user will have authority to own your file also.
Hope you can get some ideas here.:)
