    I have a share on a server that includes an install routine. When the
    clients run the install it is supposed to create a new folder to hold their
    individual settings and records. Even if I set the security to Full for the
    group something is blocking the creation of the directory. As the
    administrator I can create the directories if I am at the server, but cannot
    when logged on from the workstation.

    I have some group policies setup for control of the desktop etc., but cannot
    find anything within them that would prevent creation of a directory on the

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

  2. Check the "Share" permissions, not NTFS permissions.

  3. In order to achieve that, you will need to grant user Write permission to
    share and Modify permission via Security tab.
