Subfolder rights have changed on their own. RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    First off all, I have not done anything to the server before this problem started (honest).

     

    The access rights for some of my subfolders have changed.

     

    I have 6 folders under Videos. Only 2 of them have been affected Kids and Television Shows. Now, I can enter into both of those folders but then it wont let me enter into the next level of folder. It says "You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions."

     

    My permissions have not changed inside the console, I have full access to everything, and of course you cannot change access restrictions on subfolders (if you can, I do not know how to).

     

    While problem solving, I tried to use the WebFolderShare add in. I had to use my name and p/w to get to Television shows, but then when I wanted to go to the next directory, it would not allow me to enter under the same user name and p/w. It would only allow me to enter into it with the administrator name and p/w.

     

    So, somehow only the administrators rights will allow me to enter into those sub-folders. If I RDP, I have access to everything, no problem.

     

    Also, I tried logging in with my wifes name and p/w. Same thing, no access.

     

    Why would this happen? How can I change the sub-folder permissions back with out having to do a re-install.

     

    Upto this point, everything has been working perfect.

     

    Thx

     

    Dawg.

  • This happened to me, once, when I accidentally cut off power to the machine without shutting it down.  I think it's safe to say you should NEVER just pull the power to the WHS without ensuring it is safely shut down.  Get an UPS to keep it running, and set autoshutdown at 50% of battery power.
