Retaining NTFS Permissions from Personal drive to a Public drive.

Hi Guys,

I have an issue with my windows server 2003 R2. For example, I have a user who drag and drop files from his z: drive (home network drive on the server) to a public shared drive (P:). The problem is the NTFS Permission is retaining all the permission from the home drive to the public, that means nobody else will be able the view those files but the one who drag and drop the file. I was wondering if anybody knows how to solve this problem.

    Accepted Solution

    Go to the server....  open the physical drive where the share exists.  Right click on the share that is (P:) and goto properties.  Click security tab.  If these permissions are correct for the entire P:...meaning you don't have lower level folders that have inheirit permissions turned off the next step, click advanced, and select the box to "Reset permissions on all child objects and enable propogation of inheiritable permissions".  Click apply, click yes.
