I have a Windows 7 ultimate pc and I 2 tb hdd I'm trying to share with the network. I have it share by right clicking it and going to properties, sharing, advanced sharing and sharing it that way.

I also set the permissions to everyone with full access and owner to everyone full access. But when I go to my windows 10 pc I can see it so I click on it and go to it but when I try and paste files into it I get an error saying you need permission.
Idk why I would get this when everyone should have access.

What file path...are you trying to paste files into?

 

Historically...Windows will allow full access to all files on a shared drive...with the exception of the Docs & Settings/User files of a respective user.  Access to those files/folders must be granted specifically.

 

Example:  I dual-boot Win 7 and XP.  If I try to move files from my Win 7 shared hard drive to my XP hard shared hard drive...I can do so until I try to paste/move something into XP Docs & Settings.  At that point, I get a "no access" message.  I then go to the XP system, drill down to my Docs & Settings folders on that drive...exercise the sharing options for that group...and I can then transfer the files to those folders.

 

This probably should be moved to the Win 10 Support forum, I will do that.

I am trying to boot to a secondary drive in the root of it do m:\ is where I'm trying paste. It's not just win 10 it's any pic that's trying to put files in. I can open files but not create wich is fun since I have read and write access. Supposedly. I may try n ftp server. And I set everyone to owner.

Also how do I make so system files stop showing up in there like $recyclingbin$ and volume information. It gets annoying getting corruption errors. The drive is 2tb wd. Red.

What shows up in your File Explorer window is a direct function of the File Explorer Options you've chose, specifically the View options.  It sounds like you have the Show Hidden Files, folders, & drives option selected.  Go in to File Explorer Options, View tab, and de-select it.

  Concerning corruption errors from miss-placed system folders/files:  Also, what I have discovered -- after one has copied or moved folders/files somewhere, if one leaves the copied stuff highlighted, and then clicks on copy, move or delete -- that highlighted stuff gets exactly that - copied, moved, or deleted, on one's very next explorer.exe operations.  Thankfully, I have Recycle Bin and Resplendence's Undeluxe to recover such accidentally deleted material.  Moved?  Well, I look for it.  britechguy - is that a form of technological rococo?  :)
