Running server 2003, i have about six departments storing their information on the the server, these six departments have their own departmental folder on the server where they can store their own information, which is only able to be viewed by the employees of that specific department. employees are able to copy and/or save directly to their respective departmental folder. however one the departmental folder is not allowing the users to copy or save information to their departmental folder; keep getting the following message :"Error Copying File or Foldercannot copy -------:Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."

i checked and double check all of the permissions still nothing. any help/assistance that can be given will be greatly appreciated..

try creating a file in that directory while logged into the server as an admin and see if it allows that.

So you cannot even create a file in that share logged in locally as an administrator? That would be an inclination to me that the share has some how become corrupted.

Is it only one group having this issue? Try applying the permissions to the share and see if that fixes it. Can you post a screenshot of the security and permissions window?

All the necessary security and permissions have already being applied to the share already. would it not just be easier for me to delete the share folder and all of the individual folders, and recreate everything from scratch?

Windows has a strict limit of 255 and so does other operating systems.
