Can't modify folders, files on mapped network drive
i'm having the same problem as alot of people out there with Vista. i create
a new file on my mapped network drive, but i can't modify anything on it.
everything has to be a "Save As" and not a "Save".

See this post with other people with the same problem.

http://help.lockergnome.com/vista/un...pict26220.html

brand new box (Accer) from staples. i don't know if at staples they upgraded
the OS in store (it was sitting in stock with XP installed and they upgraded
to Vista). i guess i could format it and reinstall Vista. but there must be
some other way to fix this.

any suggestions?

Try this,

ISSUE: Unable to Rename/Move Files/Folders in Network Drive
Symptoms: the error "The "\\servername\sharedfolder" does not exist. The file may have been moved or deleted. Do you want to create it?" comes up if a user copies a file from the Share, edits the file and then tries to copy it back. You are however able to successfully save the file locally.
A second issue was not being able to rename folders/files on the Share. Again locally is fine just over the network is an issue.
Cause : Possibly the way the OEM vender packaged the OS.
Resolution : Create the parameters key in the following location :
HKLM/system/currentcontrolset/services/csc/parameters

Then within the parameters key, create a DWORD Value named FormatDatabase with a value of 1 (hex) then reboot the machine.
