    w10 shared files editable but cannot copy new files from network


    I've a w10 setup for file sharing. On the client side (the other computer on the network) I can create a file and save it on the w10. No problem. This was not easy as y'all know but I got that to work, finally.

    The remaining problem is that I cannot simply copy a file/files from the computer on the network to the w10 machine. I get a does not have permission error. I can't figure out why I can create or edit a file and save it but I cannot simply copy an existing file over to the w10 machine.

    Any ideas?

    On your local computer, there will be two ways to access shared folders. There will be the physical folder location under This PC and there will be the network shared location under Network. I have a feeling you might be attempting to save the copied files to the local PC through it's Network shared location and you probably don't have Write permission set for that share. Make sure you are trying to save the file to the real folder under This PC.

    I will check all that. I should add that I made access to EVERYONE on the w10 acting as the file server on the network

    You can set everyone with share rights but then the NTFS permissions kick in and will block you if you don't have NTFS permissions if you create a folder by default you will be the owner so others may have limited rights

    OK, you diagnosed it properly.:)
    There were 2 entries in explorer
    1. The mapped network drive in this case Y:
    and
    2. the Network described version y(\\W7) (z)

    I was trying to copy stuff to #2 and I couldn't get permission, but I could copy it to #1. So my problem is fixed. I have a rough idea of the difference in those entries but I"ll have to study a bit more to really get it.

    Thanks for your help. I was getting pretty aggravated.
