The final Solution to network shares

I have several Windows 7 in the household, all computers connected to the same router, a Netgear WNDR3700. For simplicity, let's call them 2 A and B, connected by Gigabit Ethernet.

A can access the actions to the B through "network drive mapping. B cannot access the shares on A via 'map network drive', getting access denied messages. The occasion will try to create a folder on one of the actions of B, and gets permission stupid error messages. It goes without saying anything I read on Google until hours of research has solved this problem, that's why this thread exists now.

Here's the thing. All are Windows 7, so they're all on the same network, they all belong to me, all have only accounts directors, each of them must be able to share files between them. It's the fucking 21st century. There is doubt about permissions or "ask your bloody administrator", because I am the administrator. As far as computers are concerned in this House, I'M PANICKING GOD.

Yes, it would be nice to have a special folder for some user accounts permissions, but because I have a real life instead of wasting large amounts of time wrestling with Windows, I'm pulling out all the stops.

  • All sharing is enabled.
  • Password sharing is disabled.
  • Everyone is given permission.
  • On any type of access is set to full control.
  • Total control permissions are given to "Everyone", "Administrators", "Authenticated users", and "". ""
  • User account control is completely disabled.
  • Completely the Windows Firewall is disabled.
  • Microsoft Security Essentials is completely disabled.

And yet, I still get permission denied messages. What kind of sadistic disturbed, Sociopaths have you hired to write Windows 7?

Spare me the waffle, spare me the Pseudo-politesse of your Indian outsourced technicians free feed and give me the definitive answer to annihilate these ridiculous barriers once and for all. The only people who use my network are family members and friends.

At this point, I DO NOT GIVE A BLOODY DAMN about security and confidentiality on networked computers. I want unimpeded AND unfettered ACCESS BETWEEN all COMPUTERS on THE NETWORK.

That's all. Please notify.

Two computers in question (the one with the sharing of files) and you are trying to connect to the share of this file must be on the same subnet of the same network...   If you run ipconfig on both systems, this private (assuming here, so correct me if I'm wrong) addresses IP do get?  If it's a private home network, most likely the first three digits of the IP will match.

You used the IP address of the machine (the one with the sharing of files) you want to connect to and the name of the share on this machine?  (Command line ipconfig on the computer that acts as a file server... Assuming that it is a private IP and all these systems are not connected to the public Internet as a whole...  192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x is common in such situations).

You our can also try (given you have):

NET use \\ip.address.of.server\c$ / user: NetBIOSNameOfServer\UsernameOnServer

... With substitutions appropriate.

You have a managed DHCP solution in place?  A Service domain name (DNS) to place or is system - this all being managed by a SOHO router?  (Which gives the IP addresses on the network and if you and IPCONFIG / ALL on each of the machines, which is their DNS on (just pointing to the router in many configurations of SOHO...)?)

I ask these questions because if file sharing is activated and that you entered the Ip address of the machine and not the NetBIOS name and got the share correct too (the "dollars" is the administrative share that is there by default but necessary administrative private to connect to, the dollar sign makes it hidden from casual surfing) so he shouldn't worry about the network as well just to go out and find a system connected with this IP address.

Also, you can connect to the share using the command line (with substitution is appropriate for IP and share name) on THE SERVER itself (seems like a strange thing to try, I know, but it does not check the sharing is on.).

  • What people are included in "Level 1 Administrator permissions?" when the configuration file and network share permissions?

    I'm trying to figure out how to set the level of permissions for my files and folders. But I also understand exceptions to the permissions of level 1 and level 2. I've never used a "network of the computer at work." I've only used a "network of computers at school. So I have only a limited understanding of what means "administrator." At home, when I'm sitting at my computer, which is not connected to a network to work, or school, I'm the 'administrator' on my computer. This is because I created the "user account" through the steps required to create an account on my computer, and I assigned a password to the account. Only, I can read and write to files and folders that I created in the folder "My Documents" from my user account. At least I have change permissions and file sharing, all files and folders in the "My Documents" folder are private (level 1) and no one else can read or write on my files. I have 'full control '.

    However, if I'm on a computer at work or at school, even if I am the "owner/creator" of my files and folders, there is another person (my boss or my teacher) for example, which is the 'network administrator.' Presumably, this person has access to my files and folders and share a total control over them. If that's true, how someonewho is not the creator of the file or folder access? If anyone else can have total control over my files and folders at school or work, which keeps an unknown person to access my files and folders on my computer a home. What I mean is this: if I change the permissions to allow someone else to read and write in my files and folders, which prevents an unauthorized person by performing the same steps to access my files and folders? My question is about operating systems, I learn all that is Windows XP Pro and Windows Vista SP2.

  • The Windows Firewall blocks network share on Windows 7

    I'm currently on Windows 7 Pro x 64.  I use the firewall of Windows of Microsoft Security Essentials and Microsoft.  No firewall AV or additional software is currently installed.  I regularly use the many Xbox 360 to stream media content of this machine on the home network.  In addition, I set up a homegroup to share resources such as printer and fileshares with other machines in the House.  It's all working perfectly until a few weeks ago.  No direct changes to installation other than updates of Microsoft, Adobe (Flash) and Oracle (Java).  Now, unless I turn off the Windows Firewall, my xboxs can not see the sharing machine, and no other network computers can print/share via homegroup.

    Currently, discovery network, file sharing of printers and streaming media are disabled and cannot be reactivated.  Check the radio buttons on the first two, then clicking to save does nothing.  I get sent to the network and sharing Center screen, but when I check again options for change advanced sharing settings, the options are returned to the people with reduced mobility.  Media streaming from this screen says it is on (even if this is not the case), but when I select the option to change this, it says it is disabled (which is correct).  By selecting the option to turn on media streaming continuously, does nothing.  I can click constantly with no change.

    I ran the Virus Scan free from Symantec online as long as complete system scan MSSE where each is an element, and in each case, the two elements have been removed (for the threat found by Symantec) NPE and (for the number found by MSSE) the MSSE tool.  I also run SFC/scannow and repaired the problem identified.  With two comprehensive analyses of each tool, I am sure that my machine is the threat and corruption free.

    In addition, I went through the list of services recommended to 'start' and 'automatic' which was published MANY times by MANY people.  For clarity, I have all these started and set to automatic:

    o computer browser
    o Client DHCP
    o customer DNS
    o network connections
    o knowledge of network locations
    o remote procedure call (RPC)
    o server
    o support TCP/IP Netbios
    o workstation

    With all these started, I can not follow the discovery of the network, the file and printer sharing, and streaming media options running.  I also made sure upnp started as well.

    I noticed, however, when I disabled the Windows Firewall, all options could be changed and stayed changed.  I added WMP to the firewall allow list and activated the firewall.  All options have yet.  In the firwall outgoing options are all set to allow, if incoming is currently refused saying "block all connections to programs that are not on the list of allowed programs."  It is the default state of Windows Firewall.

    Run without AV and a FW is NOT an option.  Specifically, these are tools MS and should not conflict with these simple network features.


    I was able to solve the problem after a kick in the right direction of another user of the forum.  The 'general' advice give cannot solve the problem, but they are a good starting point if nothing else.  Please see this thread for the difficulty that I used:

  • Webcam does not... What is the final solution?

    My Y550 webcam has stopped working for some reason any last week. I use it every weekend; so, I know for a fact that he has worked the previous week.

  • The size of a network share of 300 users using Persona management?

    I know that it depends on how many things users recorded in their profile, but what is a good rule of thumb to start? I dedicate a file server with a dedicated LUN just for profiles. In addition, this LUN is replicated.

    This will include desktop, my documents, etc., or will be pushed to redirect folders, located somewhere else?

  • What is the best solution for this idea...

    I have a task I'm trying to test and understand what would be the best solution for this, any recommendations would be appreciated.

    Devices at your fingertips:

    -2 ESXi hosts

    -1 iSCSI SAN OpenFiler (new just installed the app)

    2 ESXi hosts run a small amount of virtual machines that are all in the same domain.  I want to have a file server (or a repository somewhere) that houses a folder with easily accessible software (OS, Office, etc.) on the field.

    According to me, that if I made a virtual machine with a large hard drive and share the software, this would not be the best way because it would be dependent on the OS.  Someone has talked about doing a separte VMDK for it and then install it on the operating system on the virtual machine. This way I could always remove the and mount it somewhere else.

    It seems a bit weird to me that the software within this "shared folder" will also be sitting on the data store (if I create a virtual machine and need to use the OS/etc).  Not that doubles the space for the same software (in the comments, then the data store)?

    What is the best approach to make this action which can be accessed at the prompt (mostly windows) in the field?

    What is the best way to stay away the software doubles in action and on the data store?

    Please forgive me if I put interpereted your question.

    The problem you seem to face is that you must mount the ISOs of VMS software and physical systems that are on the field.

    (please, correct me if I'm wrong on this)

    If this is the case, then the best way to do would be to create sharing NFS on the openfiler, if you use openfiler to main databases also then he would be better for sharing this was separated to prevent the other help to be able to tamper with the VMDK and VMX files for your virtual machines.

    This could then be mounted in ESX to access the ISOs. While being easy to install on Linux and Windows machines to access the ISOs.

    If you have questions about NFS mounting in windows, so, this link may help

    If you are needing to access the VMs software and it is mainly the downloading ISOs then th ISO directly to the data store is possible.

    This allows you to use ESX to mount the ISO on the virtual machine.

    On the point that the software will use double disk space when you install the software on a machine virtual car will be on the network share and the VMDK virtual machines in the data store. That's right, and that's by design.

    Each virtual machine under ESXI is 'independent' (

    This means that each virtual computer must have its own copy of the application.

    This perspective reflection of each virtual machine as a separate system of 'physical '. They interact with each other as if they were physical systems.

    Each VMDK resembles a physical hard disk. Being accessible (in most configurations) 1 VM at a time.

    So if you had a set of physical systems connected to a domain and I wanted to install an application on each one, then each would have its own local copy of the application. It's the same thing with virtual machines.


    If you configure a set of physical machines so that you run the software from a network share. It is possible to do the same thing using virtual machines using the exactly the same configuration. However, the chiefs more associated to this are important in both cases.



  • sandbox on network share - tips


    I'm looking for advice on setting the sandbox on a network share (netapp cifs) for a floating VMware View no persistent environment. I'm looking to keep the sandbox in the user (roaming) profile and I also don't want to direct object %AppData%, which I think may cause problems with packets if the sandbox is left at the default location.

    All advice, questions, considerations for placing the sandbox on a network share would be welcome.


    Somethings that comes to my mind...

    1. Please understand that your network will be a part of your overall application performance. If your network is good should not be a problem.

    2. make sure that you check your sizes of sandbox. You must make sure your packages creates the smallest possible Sandbox.

    3. you should have no antivirus on access scanning on the location.

    4. the network must be unique per user (such as the users home folder)

    5 AppLinking sometimes creates .merge large files in the package sandbox parent. Be sure to investigate this. The size of the file merger is the amount that will need to be downloaded/uploaded each launch of the parent package.

  • Sandbox on a network share

    I would like to put the sandbox on a network share. I set the THINSTALL_SANDBOX_DIR environment variable
    server\share\username. Most of our ThinApps is about 3 times slower in the marketing and use, compared to executing a ThinApp with the thinstall_sandbox_dir environment variable the value of c:\temp.

    Is this a normal behavior that a sandbox located on a network share makes the ThinApp about 3 times slower compared to the location of the sandbox on a local drive? Otherwise, please notify...


    Can you try to put this option in your package.ini file to see if it solves your problem of performance when the sandboxes are located on a network share?

    DisableRegistryTransaction = 1

    Note: this option is not documented so not officially supported (yet).

  • Recommendations or best practices around change of the audio data on a network share?

    I have several users editing audio located on the same network share. They are always complaining about the performance.  Is it a best practice to edit audio located on the network?  I see so many issues (latency time, possible corruption, etc.) with that from the computer SCIENCE point of view, but I would like the opinion of those more familiar with the application and its best practices.  Thanks in advance.

    It's crazy! So that any audio to be edited with any degree of speed and security, it must be downloaded to a local computer, edited on that, and then the final result re-recorded on the network.

    You might as well do this anyway - at the time wherever you make a change, you store a local version of the file temp on the editing machine, and it has real save, or save as who turned to the network drive. Also, you would be working on a copy, the original is still available in the case of the vis - is up, and would not be the case if you edit the original files directly on the network, so it is intrinsically safer.

  • Disk utility can not create large image of drive (60 GB) on the network share

    Disc Utiity (Versie 15.0 (1511.3)):

    I am creating a disc from a hard disk image. I want to save the image on a Synology DS414 network share.

    The share is accessible a there is no active disk quota.

    I copied a large file via Finder (384 MB) to the \\partagereseau that works.

    When I try to record a copy of disk sharing (60 GB), I get the following message:

    Unsatisfactory area is available on "(null)" to create the NAME of diskimage. Choose another volume with at least 60 GB of available space and continue.

    Summary: I can create large files on the share, but the disc utilities cannot?

    Greetings Wim

    384 MB is nowadays is no longer considered to be a file of "big."

    You don't mention how much space is actually available on the Synology but for arguments sake, we will assume that more than 60 GB of space is available.

    So in theory it should be possible to create a disk image of 60 GB (no doubt), there is enough space available. As you say there is no set of storage quotas and I'm happy to believe that. I think that the issue could be more to do with the maximum allowed size of the file, remember that I mentioned that 384 is actually not much, although some systems have a limit of 4 GB for a single file, for example FAT32 file systems have such a limit. In theory the FAT32 limit should not apply here because almost all including Synology NAS servers actually use Linux as the underlying software and so use Ext3 or Ext4 as file system, not FAT32. Same Ext2 a fortiori Ext3 or Ext4 allowing individuals will produce up to 2 TB of size which is clearly much larger than 60 GB.

    Still it could be related to that question even if it is necessary as an unnecessary and artificial limit may be for example to ensure compatible with other systems using FAT32.

    If you have enough space on the Mac, you could create and try to copy on the Synology, however another approach which is probably better all around is to create a "sparsebundle disk image. It's a disc image, but another type and will work around this problem because it is in fact made up of lots of all small files attached together. As that user do you see this as image a big drive, but the computer sees it as a folder full of files much smaller.

  • Why my network shares keep duplication in 'My Computer'? I have Y and Z mapped to 2 different actions. From one day to the next, I have B - Z mapped without my fault. What is going on?

    Hello! I can't understand what this does to my computer. It seems that something is automatically re-mapping my mapped network shares. How can I even begin to solve this?

    The last major change to my system were:
    1 - installed Norton Internet Security 2011 (anti-virus, etc.)
    2 - decided to play with indexing in the Panel but I didn't not add Y and Z to the index. I didn't change the file types that are indexed using this tab in the window and check each type of file in there
    3 installed MacDrive 8 so I could connect my Mac USB keys, etc. and use them locally on my PC
    Thanks in advance!

    It was Norton Ghost. Norton Ghost tried to access a directory in one of the actions, but I had changed the location of this directory. He just started mapping and re-mapping the same actions over and over again. Weird! Then I opened the ghost, clicked in the menu Tools, then Options, then changed to something else by default backup destination. It's strange, but it does. I had not used this in over a year backup destination and have resorted to a ghost. Phantom decided not to change the backup destination by default, when I deleted my old backup job 'task' and made a new who had another destination of backup. Weird.

    Thanks for your good help.
  • Windows XP sp3 can not access the network shares on vista after installing sp2

    I have a xp sp3 computer and another currently running vista Home premium sp2. Previously, I was able to access the network share on the xp computer before vista computer I installed sp1. Both computers were able to ping between them without problem.

    I've upgraded to sp2 because I had problems with windows media center, missing records. Upgrade of these issues fixed, but this means that roll back to sp1 is not an option for me to get operational network.

    Please do not post a standard answer on the network configuration. I am familiar with the standards requirements to share files between xp and vista and everything is set up correctly.  Like I said everything was working fine before the installation of sp2.

    If it is a known problem that is still not resolved, I'd appreciate knowing that information as well.

    Edit: Firewall been disabled during my troubleshooting

    After more work, I was able to solve my problem.  Update zone alarm solved my problem and helped my windows xp machine to access my Vista network shares.  As I pointed out in the original post, zone alarm firewall has been disabled during my troubleshooting.  Apparently, when disabled, the old version of zone alarm has always been the origin of the problem.

  • Monitoring of the performance of the network share

    Was asked to monitor the performance of a drive mapped from a network share in Windows. We would like to have an idea of how long it takes to open/close/save a file on this share to different locations. As I know the Infrastructure Officer cannot monitor readers mounted remotely. I thought I could use Foglight Transaction Recorder and CitraTest to do. If someone else tried to do this? Or someone has used other methods or can think of ways to do this?

    Thank you


    Hi antoniusfirst,

    No you don't misunderstand the question. We have a license for Citratest, so it wouldn't be a problem, but I agree that it is like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I like your idea of using perl or python to do that, because it would probably be more flexible and adaptable. In fact I have been informed that the question seems to particularly affect Excel files, but some quick research on Google reveals that I have options here with perl or python too.

    Thanks for the comments, it was very helpful.

  • How to know the username of an account on a network share

    When I access a network share from another computer with windows Explorer, it tries to connect with identification information (current account & password or the credentials previously stored or depends on the settings of the remote computer as a guest), if not, it prompts for username & password (depending on certain parameters again). My problem is when I access a network share, I want to know my credentials (username) on the network computer.

    Is there any command or no way to definitely know what username I connect to a network share with windows Explorer?

    Original title: account in the network share

    Hi Aoikonomou,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    If I understand you correctly, you want to know the credentials of your system when you connect to a network share. I wish to inform you that all the names of login and passwords are supported by Credential Manager. By saving your credentials, Windows can automatically log in to websites or other computers. Credentials are stored in special files called vaults on your computer. Windows and programs (such as web browsers) can safely give the credentials in the vaults to other computers and websites.

    To know your Windows credentials, you can read the following steps to open the Manager of credentials:

    1. Press the Windows key + X.
    2. Click on Control Panel.
    3. Type "Credential"" " in the search bar and select credentials manager. "
    4. Click Windows credentials.
    5. You will be able to see the user names and password (hidden).

    In order to store passwords for automatic connection, see the following article:

    Store passwords, certificates, and other credentials for automatic logon

    Hope this information is useful. Let us know if you need more help, we will be happy to help you.
