Most of you know I try to help with the IT at my church's office.
Last week, while I was dealing with issues caused by the Windows 10 update (see separate post), I decided to install a new computer as the "server". This is a computer in the conference room used for putting items on the large screen TV for meetings and it contains a hard drive that holds all of the shared files. The system in place was running XP and the hard drive was an IDE, so I put a new(er) computer there with a much faster processor, SATA hard drive, and Windows 10. I went to the subdirectory where the shared files were stored and set it to Share. I went to the other computers on the network and mapped them to that drive. Everything looked fine.
The next day, I got a call saying the Shared drive could be read, but no one could write to it. I went in, accessed the Settings, and it looks like I had set everything correctly to let everyone have full rights to Read and Write to the Shared folder. When I went to the other computers on the network, but none of them had rights to access the drive at all.
I called the "expert" we've paid in the past to handle problems I couldn't. He is very opinionated and hates Windows 10. He apparently doesn't know much about Networking with Windows 10. He said it was much more complicated than Networking with Windows XP and recommended that I just put the old system back in place since it was working fine.
I put the old computer back in place, and initially it looked like the entire Network was gone. However, when I went in the next day everything was showing up and I was able to map to the old Shared drive again.
I guess I need to study up on how to share a directory on a network with Windows 10.
