I setup a new file server a couple months ago.  It took me a long time but I finally got the permissions the way I want them.  It worked fine for those couple months, but now all the sudden all the permissions reverted back to default.  Everyting I did is gone.  Does anyone noe what happened ???  Thanks

Did you run a service pack?  Is the server running automatic windows updates? Have you installed any third party software?  Are there any errors in the eventviewer?  Sounds like a weird one.

I think I figured out what heppend, I just dont know why.  My co worker went to the root and changed it so the system would have full control for our back up to run.  There must have been something in there that reset everythine.  Can I get it back?

Go to the drive on the server and change back the setting your co-worker ammended,  sounds like he granted everyone full control.

Well, thats not really what happened.  I uncheck the inherited permissions and then from there grant access through security groups.  All the groups were completely gone in the permissions and the all users group was back, I removed that group.
