Experts,

We have a File Server running Windows Server 2008. There is a folder located on a data drive that is shared to 2 users, these users are working fine.

When adding a 3rd user we are being denied access on specific files even when granting full control, and inheritance, we have even tried giving the user ownership. There are too many files to go in manually and re create the permissions. I need to remove all permissions and re create them from new. Can anyone advise on best practise to do this?

I would start from the root where the inheritable permissions are propagating from and remove that checkbox (copy permissions when doing so).  After that, I would go to the lowest level that seems to have an issue and change the directory permissions to only contain Domain Admins (or an account of your choosing).  Allow those permissions to inherit to it's subdirectories and then add back in the required permissions for each directory at that time.

Make sure that there are no DENYs set - these will override any other permissions - use the Effective permissions tab to check the users permissions.

BTW its bad practice to give permissions to users - put the users into a security group, then grant permissions to the group - that way you can give others permissions just by adding them to the group (or remove their permissions be removing them from the group)

Defaulted the setting on Share to Full on Authenticated users.

Within the Security permissions removed all none required users/Groups. Added the single group with full access and propagate to child objects
