I have a user, we will call them test, that I want to restrict from folder on my domain. I have the Users group setup that they can have access to my shared folder on my network. Everyone is in the Users group the logons to the domain except for test. Now I have checked all the members of Users and groups that are also members in the Users group, and test is not in any of them.

Through testing, I have found out that the Users group is still controlling permissions for test. That is I create a new shared folder that inherited the Users group. Test does not have permission but can still get into the share. If I take out the Users group, test does not have rights anymore. This makes no sense to me...any ideas why this is happening?

Best in this case to use Deny permissions. Deny has the highest priority ans will override all other permissions. You can just set the test user group to deny.

Here's a writeup on deny - http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/SBS_Small_Business_Server/Q_24522514.html
"2. permissions issue

For the sluggishness of the server, the hard drive is the most common culprit.  I would schedule a checkdisk to run at the next reboot, and then reboot the server at the soonest reasonable chance you get.  Watch it to see if any errors are corrected, and then see if its faster.

For the permissions issue, you have to be really careful when using the "deny" permission.  the most success I've had it to creat a new group for all the "authorized users--that is, everyone except the limited ones and mimic the permissions of everyone everywhere you see that.  Then create a restricted group, and only give it permissions to what the user(s) should get into. Lastly, when you are certain you've done it right, remove the everyone group from the permissions of the data directories. Make sure you dont mess up your backup system, whatever that may be.
