Windows XP file sharing oddness (any ideas?)

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by cragganmore@gmail.com, Nov 30, 2006.

  1. Guest

    Recently, I reinstalled Windows XP on two computers on my LAN. After
    the reinstall, I noticed some odd behavior when I try to copy files to
    a shared folder. Specifically, I'm unable to copy any files or folders
    that contain more than 0 bytes of data from any of my shared folders on
    one specific computer to any other computer (this is a generalization,
    but see below for the specifics).

    By means of explanation, there are three computers on our LAN
    (apologies for the odd names):

    Core2 - a desktop connected via ethernet cable to the router
    Snarla - a desktop connected via ethernet cable to the router
    Snickers - a notebook connected via wireless to the router

    My problem ONLY occurs with shared folders on Core2. In other words:

    If I'm on Core2 and open a shared folder on Snarla or Snickers, things
    work fine: can copy files to and from Snarla or Snickers' shared
    folders.
    BUT, if I'm on either Snarla or Snickers and open a shared folder on
    Core2, I have the problem.

    For example, if I have a shared folder on Core2 and access it from
    either Snarla or Snickers, I can see the folder fine (it shows up in my
    network places, I can open the shared folder and see all the contents).
    While accessing the shared folder from Snarla or Snickers, I can:

    o Copy files from Snarla or Snickers to the shared folder on Core2.
    o Delete any file in the shared folder.
    o Unzip a .zip / .rar file from the shared folder to the local drive of
    Snarla or Snickers.

    However, I can NOT:

    o Copy a file or folder from the shared folder to the local drive of
    Snarla or Snickers IF AND ONLY IF that file has more than 0 bytes of
    data in it. (In other words, if I create a next txt document or
    Photoshop document using the RIGHT CLICK -> NEW commend, these
    documents are 0 byte docs and can be copied fine.) But any file or
    folder that contains files with more than 0 bytes of data CAN'T be
    copied. Specifically, when I attempt the copy, the COPYING dialog box
    pops up, the progress bar grows just like the file is copying normally,
    but when the bar reaches the end and the file should be finished
    copying, I get the following error:


    "Error Copying File or Folder

    Cannot copy New Text Document: Access is denied.

    Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is
    not currently in use."


    The target drive isn't full or write protected, and the target file
    doesn't seem to be in use (this occurs after reboots for both systems
    and for newly created or long-ago created files).

    With respect to the 0 byte filesize issue, it's a little stranger than
    I've indicated above. I'm hoping that some of the anomalies that I've
    noticed might provide more info or clues as to what's going on, so here
    are some examples:

    NOTE: All examples are done from Snarla or Snickers - in otherwords,
    sitting at the keyboard of Snarla or Snickers - and opening a shared
    drive on Core2.

    Example 1 - Trying to copy a normal / more than 0 bytes txt file (just
    for clarity):
    a. Try to copy a txt file (or any file or folder with > 0 bytes in it)
    from the Core2 shared folder to either Snickers or Snarla - CAN'T COPY
    THIS

    Example 2 - Trying to copy a txt file - 0 bytes or more than 0 bytes:
    a. Create a new txt file on the Core2 shared folder (this is a 0 byte
    file) - can copy this
    b. Rename the txt file on the shared folder - can copy this
    c. Rename txt file again on the shared folder - can copy this
    d. Rename txt file again on the shared folder - can copy this
    (Basically, you can rename the file over and over with no difference in
    results - can always copy)
    e. Open the txt file and put data in it - can copy this even though
    it's now more than 0 bytes
    f. Open the txt file and put MORE data in it - can copy this even
    though it's now more than 0 bytes
    g. Rename the txt file that now has data in it - CAN'T COPY THIS

    Example 3 - Trying to copy a folder with a file in it:
    a. Create a new (empty) folder - can copy folder
    b. Create a new (0 byte) txt file in folder - can copy folder (with txt
    file inside)
    c. Rename folder - can copy folder (with txt file inside)
    d. Rename the txt file that's in the folder - can copy folder (with txt
    file inside)
    e. Rename txt file in folder again - can copy folder (with txt file
    inside)
    f. Open the txt file and put data in it (now it's more than 0 bytes) -
    can copy folder (with txt file inside)
    g. Open txt file and put still more data in it (even bigger than 0
    bytes now) - can copy folder (with txt file inside)
    h. Rename txt file in folder (not that the txt file is bigger than 0
    bytes) - CAN'T COPY FOLDER (with txt file inside)

    Example 4 - Trying to copy a photoshop file:
    a. Create a new psd (Photoshop) doc in the Core2 shared folder (this is
    a 0 byte file) - can copy this
    b. Rename the psd doc (still 0 bytes) - can copy this
    c. Open the psd doc and save it as the same name (now the file is 20k)
    - CAN'T COPY THIS

    What's odd to me is the discrepancy between example 2 and 4. The txt
    file can still be copied when it's bigger than 0 bytes, but once I
    rename it after it's bigger than 0 bytes, it can't be copied. The
    photoshop file, however, can't be copied once it's got more than 0
    bytes in it - no need to rename the file to prevent it from being
    copied.

    >From my amateur point of view, this all seems like a permissions issue,

    but I have no idea what's actually going on or how to fix it. I've
    noticed a few posts mentioning Kaspersky and file sharing problems, but
    I can't find anything specific to my issue, and my problem persists
    even when Kaspersky has been terminated on all three machines. For
    reference, here are the specs of the three computers as well as the
    router:

    Computer - Core 2:
    XP pro sp2
    Connects to router via cable
    Simple file sharing enabled with guest authentication
    Guest account properly activated
    Local security policy -> User rights assignment -> access-deny fields
    are correct
    Running base Windows firewall
    File and printer sharing is selected as an exception in the firewall -
    all of the following are checked:
    tcp 139 subnet
    tcp 445 subnet
    udp 137 subnet
    udp 138 subnet
    TCP/IP Settings -> Advanced Settings -> WINS -> NetBios Setting was at
    "Default." Changed to "Enable" but this didn't fix my problem.
    IPX is NOT installed
    Running Kaspersky anti-virus personal 5.0.527

    Computer - Snarla:
    XP home sp2
    Connects via cable to router
    Running base windows firewall
    File and printer sharing is selected as exception in the firewall - all
    of the following are checked:
    tcp 139 subnet
    tcp 445 subnet
    udp 137 subnet
    udp 138 subnet
    TCP/IP Settings -> Advanced Settings -> WINS -> NetBios Setting was at
    "Default." Changed to "Enable" but this didn't fix my problem.
    IPX is NOT installed
    Running Kaspersky internet security 6 with anti-hacker disabled

    Computer - Snickers:
    XP pro sp2
    Connects to router via wireless card
    Simple file sharing enabled with guest authentication
    Guest account properly activated
    Local security policy -> User rights assignment -> access-deny fields
    are correct
    Running base Windows firewall
    File and printer sharing is selected as an exception in the firewall -
    all of the following are checked:
    tcp 139 subnet
    tcp 445 subnet
    udp 137 subnet
    udp 138 subnet
    TCP/IP Settings -> Advanced Settings -> WINS -> NetBios Setting was at
    "Default." Changed to "Enable" but this didn't fix my problem.
    IPX is NOT installed
    Running Kaspersky anti-virus personal 6

    Router - Linksys wrt54g ver. 2.0
    (Note: this router is running an open source linux-based firmware)
    Firmware: X-Wrt RC6
    Webif: Webif2 r1339
    Kernel: Linux 2.4.30 #1 Thu Nov 16 13:44:17 EST 2006
    Device: Linksys WRT54G3G
    Board: Broadcom BCM947XX

    I'm also attaching (for each computer) the output from the following
    commands:

    o ipconfig /all
    o browstat status
    o net config workstation
    o net config server

    Hopefully this will provide a clue for someone who knows how to read
    the output. A lot of stuff here looks suspect to me (error 53, etc),
    but I really have no idea what I should be looking for.

    Finally, I should also mention that I first noticed this issue soon
    after the reinstall of Windows XP on the Core2 machine. At the point
    that I noticed the issue, I'd already installed most of my software
    (including Kaspersky), so it's hard for me to know if a specific piece
    of software (Kaspersky, for example) could be at fault. I wish I had
    more details. If there's any other data that you'd like to know,
    please ask. Oh, and for the record, I've gone through all the steps on
    Chuck's blog:

    <http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/10/irregularities-in-workgroup-visibility.html>

    But can't seem to find a solution. And Chuck, if you happen to read
    this, thank you so much for your blog. It's mindbogglingly amazing.
    Microsoft should hire you to redo MSDN :)

    Thanks for any help.

    > b. Rename the txt file on the shared folder - can copy this
    > c. Rename txt file again on the shared folder - can copy this
    > d. Rename txt file again on the shared folder - can copy this
    > (Basically, you can rename the file over and over with no difference in
    > results - can always copy)
    > e. Open the txt file and put data in it - can copy this even though
    > it's now more than 0 bytes
    > f. Open the txt file and put MORE data in it - can copy this even
    > though it's now more than 0 bytes
    > g. Rename the txt file that now has data in it - CAN'T COPY THIS
    >
    > Example 3 - Trying to copy a folder with a file in it:
    > a. Create a new (empty) folder - can copy folder
    > b. Create a new (0 byte) txt file in folder - can copy folder (with txt
    > file inside)
    > c. Rename folder - can copy folder (with txt file inside)
    > d. Rename the txt file that's in the folder - can copy folder (with txt
    > file inside)
    > e. Rename txt file in folder again - can copy folder (with txt file
    > inside)
    > f. Open the txt file and put data in it (now it's more than 0 bytes) -
    > can copy folder (with txt file inside)
    > g. Open txt file and put still more data in it (even bigger than 0
    > bytes now) - can copy folder (with txt file inside)
    > h. Rename txt file in folder (not that the txt file is bigger than 0
    > bytes) - CAN'T COPY FOLDER (with txt file inside)
    >
    > Example 4 - Trying to copy a photoshop file:
    > a. Create a new psd (Photoshop) doc in the Core2 shared folder (this is
    > a 0 byte file) - can copy this
    > b. Rename the psd doc (still 0 bytes) - can copy this
    > c. Open the psd doc and save it as the same name (now the file is 20k)
    > - CAN'T COPY THIS
    >
    > What's odd to me is the discrepancy between example 2 and 4. The txt
    > file can still be copied when it's bigger than 0 bytes, but once I
    > rename it after it's bigger than 0 bytes, it can't be copied. The
    > photoshop file, however, can't be copied once it's got more than 0
