Did you notice any suspected actions? Have you checked Event logs if there is no errors?

How often it repeats?

Thank you in advance

What type of file server is it?  On Netapps devices you can set permissions that can override the AD permissions to the folders so this is why I ask.

Check if it is inheriting permissions from the root folder or disk.

Are you on a Domain Environmet or its just a work group..? if it is under domain environment try make sure any group policy is not creating this problem. As a test you can reset the permissions to the desired settings then open a command prompt and type in

gpupdate /force

to force a refresh on the XP boxes. Then go back and verify the permissions
settings on the files and folders. If they changed back to the old settings
you have a policy applying from somewhere that is causing the problem. Check
the gpresult or the local policy for any settings under the Computer
Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\File System.

thnx
