i have an app, that needs to run in the folder in root of C drive (C:\AppFolder). And on client, i need map network drive for C:\ because that app searches for \AppFolder... directory. So i have shared my C:\ drive on my win server 2012 and mapped it on my client. And've set full control permissions for everyone (guest account on server is enabled also) on C:\AppFolder, but when im trying to writte to this folder if i access it thru mapped drive, it fails. If I additionally share C:\AppFolder, i can writte to that folder if i acces it thru \server\AppFolder, but i still cant writte thru mapped drive. I've tried all kind of permission setting but without any success. Thanx fo help
Slight confusion. Does the server have a server-side application that requires the application to reside in C:\AppFolder? I ask this, as the client obviously won't have a drive mapped as C:.
Aside from that, there's two things that are possibly happening here. First, the share may still be set as read-only (check by typing NET SHARE <SHARENAME> from the server console.
Secondly, User Account Control (UAC) may be preventing access.
However, in my opinion, and it's only me being a bit of a purest, I'd have the actual application data on D:\APPFOLDER, and then create a symbolic link (aka junction) on C:\APPFOLDER, pointing at D:\APPFOLDER. This can be achieved using MKLINK.
Finally, for completeness, could you try the following from the server, and publish the results:
