When I try to access my drive on the network, I get this message



This happens with all of my files. How do I change it? I have tried adding my username on the server as owner/creater but that still doesnt work.
Thanks

Few questions

You checked the NTFS permitions, if normail home network you would need to give everyone at least read access to view files?

What type of OS is on the machine that is sharing the files?

Is it an Ad environment or just simple home networking?

have you set permissions? are you logged into your usual account on the computer you're trying to access the server with?

Yes and yes. I think its because I origionally had it in my XP pc. I then put it in the server and I cant access many folders!

Ellipsis: It is running an operating system. Server 2003 Small Business edition.


did you format the hard drive before installing server 2003 on it? or did you just rip the hard drive out of your xp machine and chuck it into a machine which was already running server 2003 on another hard drive? coz if its the latter then there-in lies the problem.

Yes. I just ripped it out. So I need to put it back in my old machine and format it?

You will need to change ownership of those folders and files to your Administrator account on the server. Then from that account you will need to assign new access rights to the users that you want to see those files and folders.

though that would work you wouldn't wana do it unless you have all the data on that drive backed up first. i would take freitasm's advice and try his way.

Didnt work. I think Its coz I had vista installed with that sh***ty bitlocker or whatever its called on it. Would that be why? God damn microsoft and their useless creations.

You wrote it was Windows XP, now it was Windows Vista.

You wouldn't even see the drive's contents on the server if Bitlocker was the cause of your problem. 

When you create the share you have to make it available as well, not only the local user. So right-click the folder you are sharing, select Sharing and for the share itself click on Security. There you will be able to assign access rights to users. You can select EVeryone and give full rights just to be sure it's accessible if you don't have the user on the server.
