Security/Permissions & "everyone"

I cannot understand this, and it happens so often: In a windows network environment, there are many occasions where a user *cannot* read (write, etc...) a file, which has full sharing and security persmissions for "Everyone". As soon as I add the particular user, everything is ok. But why? How can I make "everyone" be everyone?!?

Is that Everyone with Full permission on both the share and security?
Perhaps there's an explicit Deny for a group they're a member of...

When you have share permissions and file permissions set, the OS takes the most restrictive stance.  Say you have everyone-full on the share.  However in the file permissions you have only one group with Full and everyone as Read.  Only that group will have Full, and Everyone else will have Read only.

Within just file permissions if you have a user in two different groups and one group has full while the other has Read only, then that person will have Full since within the file permissions the "least" restrictive stance is taken.

I didn't mention (sorry!) that I only have full permissions (file and network) for Everybody. And almost all times, that's only it. No other explicit permissions set. That's why I'm posing the question anyway....

Hmm - can you try perhaps creating another share on a test folder.  By default, it should be shared as Everyone/Full - just confirm the security is as well (not inherited)...

I think that the problem actually was that permissions do not apply when copying files from another system or windows 98 or...., and need to be reset.
