Problem with Windows 2000 security
Posted on 2004-11-08
have one Windows 2000 server in an NT network. The engineering dept has a directory with several subdirectories. The directories all have different secutiy levels. One directory is open to all for modification. They drop their files in there and then an enginiring supervisor reviews and moves the files to a read only directory. The problem is if you cut and paste the file it does not pick up the security of the new subdirectory. However, if you copy the file it does pick up the new security. Then you have to delete the file from the directory that is open for modification. Is this normal or is there something I am overlooking?
