I have a computer (Windows 7) in which a user logs in and is unable to transfer files from one external HDD to another. THey are also unable to rename said hard drives. The error is permission denied. An administrator of the system can perform these actions. We attempted to add the user to the local administrator group but the problem remained. The temporary solution was to add the user to the
Domain Admins group to allow them to continue their work. We also tried turning off all the GPOs being applied to that machine and the permissions error is still present. What permission setting is causing this and what is the best way to allow the user to complete these actions?
One solution that is unacceptable for this enviornment is editing the security of the individual drives. This requires a "tag" to be added to each file. There are dozens of HDDs 3TBs in size so this process would be too long and therefore unacceptable.
The other temporary solution of adding the user to Domain Admins is a security concern and only a stop gap.
