  • a shared folder with certain rights suddenly gives out full access

    Theres a folder call IT, and sub folders say Microsoft, Linux, Mac OS

    The problem I have is I have been using this server for many months now and no changes was made to the server but why is it suddenly whereby I have access to say e.g. Microsoft in IT folder but I also can view Linux and Mac OS and have full control in the folders.

    Why is it so?

    Hard to say without knowing what permissions you have in place there!

    Can you use this tool to run a report for NTFS permissions and then try to post here.

          Mainfolder: Projects
          Have the following Groups: Creator Owner, System, Network Group, System Group, IT Group, Domain Admins, Administrators, Users

          Sub Folder in Projects: SAP
          Have the following Groups: Creator Owner, System, Mr. Apple(users), Mr. Blackberry(users), Mr. Cloud(users), Mr. Derrick(users), Domain Admin, Administrators, users

          My Own User id: Mr. Electric
          Have the following Groups containing himself: Domain user, IT Admin, IT Group, IT help, Local Admin, Network Group, System Group

          So I do not have permission in SAP but I am able to have FC over it. Why?

                      You tell me.

                      Search through your group memberships and find the relevant group where you are getting the permission from.

                      This also includes nested groups.

                          I have checked. nothing at all ...

                          Is there any freeware that I can use?

                            Can you please jot down your group memberships and the exact permission on the 3 affected folders and the parent folder.

                              Hi,

                              problem solved. it was an application that grants user rights full access.

                              thanks for all the efforts and solutions.
