I've just recently installed Windows 7, and I'm trying to set up a network share to be accessible by everyone on my (home) network. I'm used to XP, so it's taking me a little while to get used to the new way of sharing folders and setting permissions in 7.
So far, I have been able to:
- share a directory on the network
- change permissions on the directory so that users can actually see the contents
Now my problem is that every file in the directory is viewable, but not readable to network users. From my other machine I can see that the file exists, but when I try to copy it, I get a permissions error.
Is there a way to open the permissions on all the files in a directory to be readable by everyone?
So far I have only found a way to do it one file at a time, and that's just awful. In unix terms, I want all the directories to be 755, and all the files to be 644. How can I do this recursively?
