Can't Access a Folder on Windows

Can't Access a Folder on Windows

Can't Access a Folder on Windows

I was able to access a folder on the network. One day 's can't access and the error the folder's name is unavailable. I can access other folder that don't have any restrictions. This Folder is only available to 6 IT people. I have attached a screen shot of the security settings for this user. I have taken the computer off the domain and back to the domain. Any ideas.

RE: Can't Access a Folder on Windows

If this issue only happens with one user I would say it is an AD issue with that users permissions. Have one of the IT guys look at the permissions for that folder for the group the user is in and/or the individual user.

RE: Can't Access a Folder on Windows

I have this happen every so often.

Here is one thing you can try:

Using SysInternals psexec....


psexec -s -i -d cmd.exe
rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr 

... delete any credentials found in there then reconnect to the share.

If you have an issue with EXE files not running from a share, you can try this:

From an elevated command prompt:


REG ADD "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CSC\Parameters" /v FormatDatabase /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f 

... that resets/reformats the CSC service database.

Just my $.02
