Problems opening folders under Shared Folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have several folders, some can be opened and some not (not accessible - no permision). This happens when right clicking the WHS icon down on the right of the screen and pressing Shared Folders.

    I even tried making a new folder without any luck.

    How do I fix this problem?

    In fact I can't make access to any folders now.....havent done anything particualry than installing som add-ons. Which by the way has been working fine before.

  • Changed permissions onlt on those folder that didnt work and those new folders I made - this was done both through the server shared and by logging into the server desktop.

    Compared the working folders and not working folders - all have the same permissions it seems to.

    I can open the folders on the desktop computer.

    Well, first I have to log in....

    What.....well it seems everything is back to normal again - somehow!!!!

    This is strange....

    Did you change the permissions on any of the folders or subfolders yourself (either through the server shares, or by logging into the server desktop)?  Have you checked the share permissions in the WHS Console to make sure you still have access to those shares?  If you right click on one of the folders and select Properties, then the Security tab, what does it show?

    You should never change any permissions by logging into the server desktop.  Always use the WHS Console to change the permissions on the shares.

  • Point noted!

    However, why it works now is  a bit strange though......
