[xp/server 2003] windows security problem - user cannot delete files


Recommended Posts

Weird problem with file security in Windows Server 2003/Windows XP domain:

When a particular user attempts to delete files from a particular folder tries to delete a file from that folder, she gets the message 'access denied'. I have checked the security settings and it all looks correct - the user has full control over the folder and its contents, as does the group 'Users', of which she is a member. The other entries are the standard entries for administrator and the administrators group. There are no rules denying access to any user or group, and the 'effective permissions' window shows the user as being able to delete files.

As far as I can tell, there should be nothing preventing the user from being able to delete. I have asked the user to log off, made sure no other users are using the files, and attempted to log on as the user from another machine, all with no success.

Does anyone have any ideas about this?
