Inherited permissions from root can't be found?

Using SBS 2008 and Windows Fax Service.

I've got a folder setup to hold Faxes located at D:\Data\Faxes. For some reason, one user has special permissions for this folder only that are, supposedly, inherited from the root of Drive D.

See screenshot on right of Advanced Settings, user Ron.... (Note: there is another user, R Dono... that has explicit deny permissions that I intentionally created, so this can be ignored)

However, as the left screenshot also shows, the user Ron does not have any security settings at the root.

So where are the settings coming from? I know I must be missing something obvious and don't want to mess around with the inheritence until I understand where things are coming from. Permissions

If you click on advanced, can you see his details listed there for the D: root? Also is he down as owner?

Just a couple of things to check

Bingo! He is listed as the current owner - no idea why. Could swear I checked that but guess I didn't...

I'll change it to Administrators. Thanks for the quick reply!
