Network problems after converting to NTFS

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Can anyone help me with a problem I am encountering? I converted my son's
computer to NTFS and all seemed to go well. Except for the fact that the
network is basically toast! I have a three system network and after the
conversion, I cannot access anything from either system. I tried to run
network setup, but that failed to do anything.

I did check to see if he could print using the printer connected to the
network and that was no problem, so what's with the file access? The error
message reads as follows:

***** is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network
resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have
access permissions.

Access is denied

Since I am the administrator, what do I do now?

Thanks for the assistance.....

NTFS is the advanced security aware version of Window's file systems.  AS
such it involves file and hardware permissions which must be set.  I'd
recommend picking up a Windows explanatory book to take you thru the

Verify that all permissions on shared resources are set correctly.
NTFS supports and enforces permissions.  FAT does not.
