At my organization we are running windows 7 and all of our users are power users and are not local admins on their machines. I am running into an issue were the Developers aren't able to create any file shares. Does anyone know a way for them to do so?

The group "Power Users" is obsolete since Vista and removed from the ACL. So don't use it any longer!

What kind of a group can I use to have my users have permissions similiar to a XP power user group then? – BigCAT41 Dec 17 '12 at 20:49
you have to decide if you want to add them to the admin group or add the to the users group with limited rights. – magicandre1981 Dec 18 '12 at 5:02
ok would that be in the local GPO or would I have to make a group? I also read something about making a new security template to have similar rights is that any help? – BigCAT41 Dec 18 '12 at 13:57
I don't know if there is a template. But as I said, add them to the normal users group. – magicandre1981 Dec 18 '12 at 14:23
ok thanks for all of your help – BigCAT41 Dec 18 '12 at 20:15
