Permissions on files are disappearing
Posted on 2009-07-14
I have a file server that is running server 2008 and one of my shares on this is for my 2 Mac users. There is a very strange thing going on that is very sporadic. They will go to access a file and even though it is there it will be empty then it will dissapear, but when I go in on my windows box it is there and opens fine. So I go out to our backup and try and do a restore and that still does not fix the issue. Now here comes the really interesting issue, I can not delete this file and when I go to check the permissions on it, it errors out at the security tab on the files properties page. To get around this I have to have to copy the file to a folder that i create, have the Mac user delete the file because it wont let me do it, and then I have to recreate the folder after she deletes it and put the file back. This is becoming a real issue and I am worried that there is a deeper issue that we are not seeing. I hope that someone out there can help with this.
