NTFS Permissions are being set to allow only the file creator.

I have a user that no matter what type of file she's saving or what network share she's saving it to, the NTFS permssions set to ONLY her being able to open it. I then have to reset the permssions on said file just so other users can open it. I've check everything I can think of on her AD account and her machine, but I can't seem to find the problem. File server is Server '03. Workstation is XP Pro. Any ideas?

Hello Mixxit,

Can you tell me how the current setup is with your NTFS and file security for the folder that she is saving too?  thanks.

Hi G00se. Thanks for the reply. It varies from folder to folder. It doesn't matter where she saves the document; she's the only one that has access to it. However, if any other users save to any of the same folders, the document inherits the permissions of that folder. Thoughts?

Is she part of an Admin group?  

What happens if she logs on a different PC and saves a file on the network?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

She is not an admin. Checking from another workstation was my next step. Let me give that a shot and I'll get back to you.

Just a quick question - When she adds a file or folder within any other folder, and you check the permissions on the file/folder she created, I'm guessing it's somehow removing the 'inherit from parent' checkbox?

Or is this still set, yet somehow isn't taking effect?

I just walked over there and watched her perform this process. It turns out that this happens when she CUTS documents from her home directory (a drive that is exclusive to her) to a shared directory. In that scenario, the permissions are indeed supposed to remain in tact, correct? So this is happening by design, right?

Thanks for the update.  The permissions will follow her files (from her home directory- shared directory) unless you have the destination folders stating to inherit permissions from the parent folder.

This is under the folder security\ advance\ inherit parent permissions.
