I've been trying to nail down an issue that's come up recently, I suspect due to some changes I made (had my cowboy hat on at the time):
All users, including admin, cannot delete files from a documents collection using the drop down menu option in the collection. The site spits back 'an error occured' with no other useful data.
If they view the item properties, they can delete the item from there.
All users with appropriate permissions can delete successfully from the team site 'students' which hangs off the main sharepoint site.
Ultimately I reverted all the changes I made (I was tracking down an issue with kerberos authentication and osx10.8, which is another story in itself) but this seems to have stuck. I'm not sure where to start looking for a solution here, can anyone point me in the general direction? This site is configured to use the AD member \Administrator as the service account for WSS, if that helps.
Actions taken so far: Checked permissions, all groups have correct permissions for the site (these have not changed). Checked inheritance - broke inheritance and reconnected it site wide, no change. Looked at SQL Manager - nothing obviously wrong but I don't know what to look for.
