I have built a small home network via cable, 1 server and 3 users. Whenever I share some folder and give access rights to other users, it displays an error message, “Access Denied”.
I’ve discovered that if I share a folder on any drive other than C, it works fine but some folders shared on C do not give access rights, even though rights are granted upon sharing.
Please tell me why is it so?
Sharing folder access rights problem
This issue will incur if the user doesn't have the Bypass Traverse Checking User Right on the parent shared folder. You need to enable this feature to fix the issue. But remember that once the Bypass Traverse Checking User Right is enabled, users can navigate or access the folders even if they do not have permissions. This right will not let the users to record the folder's contents. To enable it:
1. Launch Windows Explorer and then open and right-click on the shared parent folder from the root of the drive and then click Properties.
2. Click Advanced under the Security tab.
3. Tick the "Reset permissions on all Child objects and enable propagation of inheritable permissions" check box.
4. Click the user that is having the Access Denied error on the Permission Entries and then click View / Edit.
5. Tick the check box on the Allow Column. If the check box is selected in the Deny Column, untick it.
6. Click OK and then OK. Click OK to exit.
