Cannot open folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • I changed my IP address to static, then back to dynamic.

    Since then I cannot access the folders on the server, everything else seems to work fine.  Server folder opens showing all the folders inside, but the inside folders won't open stating a permissions issue.  This also happens on the WHS box itself when using folders tab - no access.  When using windows explorer wth advance admin console, they open.

    Everything else works, computers connect.....I don't understand what is going on.  I checked all the permissions on the folder, and all seem to be right.

     

    Thanks,

    John

  • OK, For some reason Homegroup on the server changed all it's folder permissions to no access.  I changed them back and it works now.

     

    Why is that happening?

  • Homegroup I believe overrides Server permissions - is that the issue?
