I have a machine called \shares\

There are two drives on it, the "Local Disk (C:)" and the drive I want to put the shared resources on "Shares (S:)"

enter image description here

This is a brand-new Server 2012, and I have a test folder located within the S: drive on which I have enabled sharing for Everyone, and also specifically for myself

enter image description here

This machine is on the correct domain, alone with the machine I am trying to share resources with.

Here's the weird issue: When I create a shared folder in the C: drive in this manner all shared machines can access it. When I create a folder in the S: drive, I get a permission denied error:

Here is a screen shot of the NTFS permissions enter image description here

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

So it's telling you that you don't have permissions. What are the permissions? You did not tell us what the NTFS permissions where - only the share permissions. NTFS permissions take precedence over share permissions. – Ryan Ries Jul 15 '13 at 18:36
Thanks for the reply. I have edited the question with a screen shot of the NTFS permissions. My user has full control. – AdamF Jul 15 '13 at 19:18
Maybe better for SuperUser forums? – David George Jul 15 '13 at 19:29

Make sure that the account you're using to connect to the share

  1. Is an account that the server knows about (a domain account, or a local account with the same password on both systems), and
  2. Has NTFS file permissions to read and write to the share, in addition to the permissions you set on the share itself.

Thanks Katherine, I have verified these. – AdamF Jul 15 '13 at 19:19
Can you view the share, but just not write? (That's what it sounds like you're saying; just confirming.) If so: Try clicking advanced and propagating all permissions down across all child objects and see if that helps you. – Katherine Villyard Jul 15 '13 at 19:24
When I navigate to \\shares\ I can see the Test2 folder that I want to access, but when I try to access I get the permissions error. – AdamF Jul 15 '13 at 19:32
And you're definitely trying to access the share as domainname\adam? – Katherine Villyard Jul 15 '13 at 19:34
Hi Katherine. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me. I solved it by removing/readding the machine to the domain. – AdamF Jul 15 '13 at 21:06

Removed and readded to the domain. Seems to be working now.

@slm Really? AdamF is the OP, and he has detailed what he's done to fix the problem. – Bryan Jul 15 '13 at 22:02
@Bryan - as far as this answer goes no. Seems more like a comment, or the details of the solution should've been captured here in this answer. – slm Jul 15 '13 at 22:13
@slm I don't see how you can really expand removed and readded to the domain. It's specific enough, any more text is pretty much superflous to any other professional or intern reading this. – Bryan Jul 15 '13 at 22:18
@Bryan - I see what you're saying but as answers go it seems a little light, no? I did not downvote it or anything, just making a comment. Seems like all the crux of this answer is in the question along with the comments on the Q. Maybe reflect some of the comments in this answer? – slm Jul 15 '13 at 22:28
