So I have a folder on my surface pro 3 (windows 10) which is shared and has permissions for everyone set to allow full control.

 

My PC (windowns 8) can drag files into that folder across the network just fine but my laptop (windows 7) keeps coming up with 'you need permission to perform this action'.

 

I also turned off password protection just in case that was it.

There are two things that come into play on a share, share rights and security rights.  Share rights concern remote access and Security rights concern local access.  When accessing a share you have the lowest common denominator of the combined rights.

 

Share = Full, Security = Read Only -> Share access is Read Only. Local access is Read Only.

Share = Read Only, Security = Full -> Share access is Read Only. Local access is Full.

 

This would be an issue if you were sharing the Documents folder of a user for instance.  That user would have Full rights locally and remotely, but all other users would not have any rights locally, so no access remotely.

I'm sharing a created folder on the C drive.

 

Why would one computer have full access but not another?

Right click the folder you are sharing and change to the Security tab.  Look to see what rights the user connecting to the share has.  If they are not listed they have no access.

 

Using passwords solves more problems than it creates.  You should be using the same user name and password on all three computers.  If you are using different user names they need to be added to the machine with the share and given rights to the share and added to the Security tab.

sorry for late reply.

 

So I fixed it by poking around and guided by your advice above. I went into the security tab, located HomeUsers in the group or user names and then clicked 'advanced'. Here I noticed HomeUsers didn't have 'full control' like the others. So I made it so it had full control + all subfolders and files.

 

Does that sound about right? I was stabbing around in the dark and just hit the right buttons basically.

Normally you don't need full control, but if security isn't a major issue it will work.  Full control allows someone with right to the share reshare it on their computer.

 

Glad  to hear you got it working.
