Is there a way to force permission settings to save

I have a 2003 enterprise edition server that fails to save the permission settings on a couple of hard drives.  Both of these hard drives are external.  I can set them. But when I reboot the server for whatever reason it loses them.  Is there a way to force the system to save these rights after I set them up? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

One, check and make sure under Advanced in the permissions tab that you (or a domain admin) has ownership of the folders.
Also is there a user in the permissions that does not exist anymore? In the list you will have readble user names and maybe one that is is along string of numbers. That one needs to be removed. If not changing the ownership of the folders and files to a admin group should fix this.

I checked the ownership and you were correct there was a string of numbers in there.  I gave ownership to our domain admins.  I will be rebooting the server tonight.  I will then see if it solved the problem.  I will then also give you the point then.  Thanks this has been driving me nuts tryig to figure it out.
