For some reason any new user that is created cannot modify/change and save
files on a network drive. It happens on Win2k & XP Pro.

I created a new user with the exact same rights as other users in her
department. She also has the same drive mappings (with exception her "home"
directory). Some network shares she can write to, others she can't. She is
a member of a group that has 'Read, Read & Execute and List' rights. Her
user has 'Full Control" on the folder.

She's trying to modify office documents and they all open 'read-only' (she
can't even modify .txt files). Now, I tried making her a member of
Administrators and it worked. I took her out and it didn't work.
Something's not right here if everyone else has been using the same rights
for a very long time and now I can't create a user that can write to the
network shares.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!!

Can you list the entire ACL, and her relationship to any groups used within
that ACL?

I see that you have checked file and folder permissions, but have you
checked share permissions as well?

The user may not have write permissions to the share, and therefore
wouldn't have the ability to write to any files she's accessing through the
share.
