Specs: Windows XP Proffessional
Hi i have XP Pro. i have MS publisher 2002, i also have a NAS drive with SMB server and FTP server on the NAS drive. This drive attaches to a switch, which inturn connects to my computers.

When i save a file to my NAS drive i can open it, but when i alter it and then re-save, i cannot open it at all.

I do the same thing to my desktop and it works fine.

I copy the file i cannot open (from my NAS) to my desktop and i still cant open it.

I try and open it on the NAS from another computer and it will not open.

On my NAS drive i have SMB server settings;
Guest account = R/W (no password)

On my NAS drive i have set my FTP server;
Annonamous = R/W (no password)

Trial and error =
I recently changed my NAS drives FTP setting, it was ;
Anonamous = R (no password)
Before i changed this i was unable to open saved files on the NAS drive, after i changed this i was able to open the files but on re-saving i could not open the files.

I can save .doc files to my NAS drive and have no trouble with openning saving reopening etc.

But on my MS word when i try and save to the NAS drive, it states that the drive/location is full (or words to that effect)

I then change the file format in which i saving in and it saves perfectly fine.

If memory serves me correct i tried MS power point to see, and it have the same problem as MS publisher.

Thanx for looking hope you can help.

NAS is a server and as with any server you should be creating a user account ie. your account with full access rights.

there is an account called Guest and this is set to read and write privilliges (on SMB server, i take it this is the server it uses over LAN?).

The computer when accessing this drive for the first time asked me to enter in a user name and password (guest - no password) and this was saved to the list so i do not have to enter it again

Guest on all nas servers I have worked with is a limited account.

As previously suggested, access the admin configuration page and create an administrator account that you will then logon to for the nas access.

Review the nas manual if you don't know how to access the config page.

Thank you, i will try that...

How do you enter the new admin account name and password to the computers accessing the NAS drive

(as they are already saved with the guest user name)

Also its ok for all computers to use the same access name isnt it?
