When copying file to SNAP SERVER 110 writes to all shares on the server.

Q: When copying file to SNAP SERVER 110 writes to all shares on the server.

I have a SNAP SERVER 110 160G RAID0 running GuardianOS 4.4.049 SP3. It is setup with 6 share folders. One accepts all users anonymous ftp and the others are folders only accessible by local snap admins and specific local snap users. When someone writes a file to the ftp share it gets also written to all of the shares. The server is standalone not in a windows domain or NIS.

Preferred Solution: When copying file to SNAP SERVER 110 writes to all shares on the server.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Hello all,

We have a Windows 7 Pro computer in an unsecure room acting as a file server to 10 other computers on the network.

My issue is with creating and securing network shared folders so that prying eyes can not access info not meant for them.

We currently have 3 folders to share with different departments. These folders are 'Accounting', 'Design', and 'Production'.

As mentioned there are 10 other computers on the network and user accounts have been created on the file server to match the user accounts on each of the 10 computers. For these 10 user accounts on the file server, we did however set up the users with passwords that are different than the password used on their own computer. This was done to prevent anyone from logging into the file server and messing with it.

The method I am considering for sharing the 'Accounting', 'Design', and 'Production' folders is to share each folder on the file server and to add 'Everyone' as a user, granting access to all 10 users on the network. To limit access to any particular user, via the 'Security' tab on the shared folder, I press the edit button and add the user. Then all their permissions are set to deny. I would add more users I wish to deny access in the same way.

It seems to work fine. Mapping a network drive to the file server is allowed only by users not denied for the particular share and a password is not required to map to the share.

Is there any security risk to doing it this way or any downside I may ... Read more

A:Win 7 Pro file server with network shares - is this method secure?

Hi there,

This is not an optimal solution. What you've done, if I understand your explanation properly is open up access (everyone), then put band-aids over it.

One better approach is to (a). Create groups for each department (b). Create the shares with permissions specific to each group (Accounting users can access the accounting share), then grant specific Allow permissions only to that group for that folder and sub-folders. You could add deny permissions for others, but it simply adds complexity that you don't need.

A good security model starts from a deny-all point and adds allow permissions as required. You are working the other way.. Allow all then deny as required. It may well work, but you risk missing something one day and then someone gets access to something they shouldn't.

It's better to have a user complain that can't access something (that you then fix), than have someone with access to something they shouldn't and they don't tell you about it.

Where possible you should always stay away from Everyone permissions.

Also, full control, unless specifically needed, should only be granted to administrators.

As a general rule of thumb, you open it up only as much as you need to to let the people who should have access gain access.

It may be that the credentials required to access the share are stored in your credential manager (see control panel). Password protected shares are a good thing, as long as you don't have to enter the password every time. Worked in... Read more

We have an older snap server on our network. It uses Snap OS, which appears not to be supported anymore. All of our XP machines can access it, for Windows 7 we use a small technical but this technical doesn't work on Windows 8. When
I try to access the share, I get prompted for my credentials, which I enter. I'm using my domain account, which has full access to the share. The credentials are not accepted.

I can acces the snap server through the browser to administer it. I just can't get to the share through Windows Explorer. Any ideas?

Hi All,

I have an .exe file sitting on w2k server (ntfs drive) that's accessed by all users. I'm trying to setup a permission that users can only READ and EXECUTE from the server and they can't copy the .exe file to their local drives. There's no Deny Copy I could set on the server. How do you accomplish this goal. Your advice is greatly appreciated.


A:Prevent users from copying .exe file from server

The only thing I can think of, depending on how many users you have and how computer savvy they are, is to make sure their computers are set to "Do not show hidden files or folders" and then make your executable a hidden file.

Hope this helps,

I have an XP machine looking at a 2003 Server (peer2peer no domain). It can see SOME shares on the server fine, but one shared folder says "...is not accessible... Incorrect Function..." when clicked. WTF? Other pc's (Win7) see it fine. Checked permissions on the share and it's Everyone = Complete Access. I tried mapping a drive letter to the share and got an error saying that it already is mapped!! Not that I can find though. How could ONE share be inaccessible?

I have a Desktop with XP, Laptop with Vista.

Both are on the same workgroup & IP subnet and I have installed the LLTP patch for XP. Both have the exact same firewall, the network has been "trusted" and each computer is trusted by MAC address.

On the desktop, I can't see "Laptop" in "Workgroup Computers", but when I try \\laptop, it opens and I can see all the shares.

On the laptop I can see "Desktop" in the "Network View" but if I try to click it, or use \\desktop I get a message saying it is inaccessible. Then if I go to a specific share "\\desktop\share1", I can get to it fine.

I'd prefer to be able to get directly to \\desktop and be able to brosw the shares instead of having to remember specific paths. Anything else I can try?

SRV1 has a folder, FLDR1, being shared for read only access to user USR1.

PC1 and PC2 logged on as Domain User USR1.
PC1 is able to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
PC2 is unable to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
Now there are multiple means of connecting to SRV1 to see the share FLDR1.

The following connections were done in combination with the following methods;
Method 1 - via logged on Domain User CMD Prompt with 'NET VIEW'.
Method 2 - via logged on Domain Administrator CMD Prompt with 'NET VIEW'.
Method 3 - via logged on Domain User Explorer Window.

Okay I want to go over pros and cons of some of the things that my boss wants done.

First off let me explain what we have. Users are on a domain system. Both laptop and desktop users. No users have admin rights.

Now let me explain what we want to do. We want a backup of their My Documents (and possibly other directories in the future) but we want it to be as invisible to them as possible.

I looked into the Folder redirection GPO and has a good pro - Simple to impelment (I did a test on my own PC did it in about 5 minutes) cons - in order to allow laptops to work they would have to have offline folders enabled and synchrnized and worst of all synchrnization won't accept PST's, MDB's and other key files that we would need synchronized as well gives errors in the synching process.

I then thought about a file sync program letting them seemlessly work on their PCs and just sync the files to the file server - Pros Can install a server side client that just polls for connected PC's and copies the files to the repsective places. Cons costs money, usually does not sync in use files making some of the files be missed.

Lastly I considered a batch file to run at login - Pros easier to setup to copy things out. Cons only runs at login so people could leave their PC up for 15 days and have 15 day old software. As well I do not know how to copy only modified files so some people with large files would copy over a ton of data (unless I can find a solution for this).

Hya folks

I hope you guys can help me more than my IT dept.

We have a backup server running Server 2003. We are also using this server for shared databases. I have created a folder for one of our depts & made the shares & sorted the security settings. However the end user (running 98) can not see the share.

If I put it as a shared sub-folder of another shared folder she can see it but only by navigating thru the parent folder which I don't want due to the nature of the contents of that folder.

I'm now confused & not really an expert on sharing. Any help really appreciated.

I've been dealing with this issue for hours now and have tried everything I can think of. I have a Windows 10 Home PC that I have an incoming VPN connection on. I can connect to it, but if the firewall is enabled, I can't ping it or access the shares. If I turn the firewall off I CAN ping and access shares. It was working fine yesterday and I don't remember doing anything to cause this. I've tracked it down to being something with my Public networks. When I disable the firewall on public networks (the VPN adapter) I can ping, but once I enable that it stops pinging. I've tried everything listed below but still can't get it to work:
Checked port 1723 is openAllowed EVERYTHING with a firewall rule, through itChecked multiple devices on another Wi-Fi network and 3G with a phoneRestarted PC; other devices and routerI can ping every other device on my network besides the one creating the VPN (which is the one I need)and so many other steps.Made sure file and printer sharing were enabled in network and sharing center

Is there some other rule that got removed from the firewall I need to re-add? Any help or tips would be appreciated!

Hello Everyone,

My first post so I'm hoping I'm in the right section.

We have a Snap server at one of our offices and a staff member who has a Windows 7 Ultimate machine. He is able to see the network drives on the Snap Server and is able to browse the folders. When he tries to open a file, either Word, Excel etc the program will hang for some time, Not Responding will be displayed in the top left hand corner. It will stay in this fashion for anywhere between 2 - 6 minutes and then finally open.
On a WinXP machine I have been able to open the same files, irrespective of file size and type, within a matter of second. It just appears to be the Win7 machine that is having issues.
Has anyone come across this sort of thing before?

I'm running a Windows Server 2012 Standard server at home, offering up several standard smb shares to a few client PCs around the home. Despite having changed nothing on the server I was, a little while ago, shocked to be told I did not have access to my music share. I logged on to the server to see that the only account that was granted access to the folders contained within the share was a single account from another machine (listed as a long meaningless string). I proceeded to restore the correct security settings to each folder and re-establish the share. What perplexes me though is that it has now happened again on a second share- unfortunately one that contains a much larger amount of data and subfolders. Can anyone offer an explanation as to how or why Windows is messing up my security settings, and perhaps offer a quick solution to resetting the security settings on a mass of subfolders? I have attempted to change the parent's settings and have it be set to all child objects, however I get an "access denied" error when attempting this- leading me to believe the only way around it is to set each folder individually. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We upgraded to Win 2012 Server last year, with all of our clients upgrading to Win7 Pro-64 bit.  We have one application that has been difficult to migrate away from, so we still run it in an XP Mode environment.  The application is dBase IV. 
OK, if you have stopped laughing, here is the issue.  Our database files are in a shared folder on our server, which is shared by the Win7 client as J:.  In the XP Mode environment, we were able to perform a "Net use j: \\tsclient\j: /persistent:yes"
command and the dBase files would be available there as drive J: as well.  This has worked for almost a year, and suddenly, those shares within the XP mode environment are having problems.  At times they will show Unavailable, and when you try to
re-establish the share, the command completes successfully, but when you do a Dir J:, there is nothing there.  Has anyone else experienced this problem?   We are current on fixes both on the server and the clients, but just critical fixes, we
don't generally install optional fixes unless they apply directly to our environment.

Ok, i have a 2k server at home running my domain, and once upon a time it started doing what i thought was kicking everyone off the network, i had error log info on liscencing and loads of stuff that wasnt anything to do with it. So i rebuilt the server and its been sorted for a while, and all of a sudden its done it again. But this time i looked into it a bit deeper and found although typing \\servername i get a "Windows cannot find..." error. If i have a visible share not one with a "$" after i can still access it, so despite not having access to the server root, i can get to \\server\share, however if i had a share that was hidden, like all mine were! I get nothing, and on the actual shares list of the server it no longer exists! Neither do the c$ d$ or any of the default ones!
I looked online and found a thing about bringing back the c$ and default shares, reg tweak, but i cant find anything about any custom made shares.

I have a Linux server with file shares on my local network. My problem is with writing data to those shares from my Windows 10 Home PC. The problem manifests with data writes that are exceedingly slow (not greater than 300 kB/sec) and generally time out before they complete. The problem is aggravated with larger file sizes. I also notice that the Linux server does not show up when browsing the network on the Windows 10 PC, but it does show up when browsing the network from the Windows 7 PCs.

I have done extensive troubleshooting of the problem and found that this problem is specific to the one Windows 10 PC that I have. All other PCs (running Windows 7) work just fine. I have tested the Windows 7 PCs on the same network port where my Windows 10 PC is located. I even went so far as to purchase a new NIC for the Windows 10 PC, but the behavior has not changed.

The one odd aspect to the problem is that I can make it go away by changing the Windows 10 PC's work group name to something other than usual value (WORKGROUP), changing the work group name back to WORKGROUP, and rebooting the PC. This action causes the shares to behave correctly (reads and writes are generally done at 10 MB/sec or better) until I reboot the PC again, at which time the aberrant behavior resurfaces.

Here are some further details concerning the configuration:

Instead of using commands from the prompt which you would have put in a login script in xp.
Can you just open windows and then see if you are able to connect directly by using \\servername\share-name.
If it prompts you with a window for a username and password then do this
1. put the username as domain\username
2. if 1 doesnt work try ipaddress\username
3. if both dont work then lookup the error code in eventviewer.

We update our client's software *.exe programs by storing the update code in a blob record in a server based MySQL database.

When the user logs on to the main program on his PC, if there are updates, a dialog message displays and the updates are written from the server to the local directory -- the same directory as the main program resides.

This has worked very well on XP (where we used *program files\* as the directory).
It has also worked fine in vista and 32bit windows 7 (where we use the user's app data\roaming directory.

On Windows 7 64-bit however, the update fails. It opens the file name of the updated program with zero bytes and then displays the message:

"Could not write to... c:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\.. etc."

I've tried running the main program as administrator.
I've turned off UAC.
I suspect this is a security issue, but is there any workaround?

A:Copying exe files from server to pc

That app has to have permission to write to that user's folder. If it's running under their user name it shouldn't be a problem. If it runs under a different username or group (like Network Service, etc etc) make sure that group can write to said destination.

I'm trying to copy Symlinks from Windows 10 to Nas...... the path to a network location (\\nas\folder)changed but still symlinks not copied correctly. file names and directories only copied, but the new symlinks don't point to the correct path and the files are blank give us ( 0 bytes) .

I tried Robocopying to a different Windows system on the network (\\pcs\folder) with the same result, so it's not Nas specific.

The command used (run as admin):
robocopy "D:\MARK\CPAF\MOBI\MH\WEBBS\ " "\\nas\a\test " /s /sl

so how can I solve this problem?

I have a 2012 server that will bsod when I try to copy data over the network. It will drop anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour of copying data. it has never done this before and I've copied a lot of data off of it before. I could sure use some help figuring this one out.

The most recent .dmp files seem to show Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe, but that's not very helpful from what I have seen around the web. I have made sure that the RAID and network drivers and firmware are up to date.

We recently migrated from dropbox to NAS Server - since then some files, not all, refuse to be copied. I can move those files (folders) within the NAS server , but I cannot cut/copy/paste. It is also not possible to move them to another drive.
Read/Write/Edit Access is not restricted.
I have tried the registry fix:

Type CopyFileBufferedSynchronousIo to name the new entry, and then press ENTER.Right-click CopyFileBufferedSynchronousIo, and then click Modify.
Didn't help.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Howdy, quick question for ya.

Are Windows 2000 scheduled tasks stored as actual files on the server? If so, can I copy those tasks to another server?

I have three servers that are identical in terms of directory structure. One of these is going to be running some scheduled events, but I'd like to populate the other two with the same events as one level of redundancy. On the backup servers, I would disable the events.

Currently, the plan is any time I create or modify an event on the primary server, I would have to update the 2 backup servers.

So, is there an easier way to do this?

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :

Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:


As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

Does anyone know how I can solve this or where I can download the files and try copy them from a floppy to hard drive using command promp

A:Copying Files error when installing Windows Server 2003

Usually files aren't found because of CD has scratches / dirt on it. Sometimes the drives themselves don't work with some discs and you could try another drive (for the installation).

Are you able to finish the installation without those files? If you are, check if they really are on the CD and use expand command in the command prompt to uncompress them.

mswrd632.wp_ is MS Word document converter for Wordpad (and maybe other applications too) and goes to %ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\TextConv (filename mswrd632.wpc).

The rest .exe files are Internet connection wizard's files and go to %ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\Connection Wizard, if I'm not mistaken.

If you use another way to setup your network connection and don't read Word 6 documents with Wordpad, you could just ignore those files.
