I received a request to re-configure public drives on our Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003 file servers in such a manner that allows our group1 users the ability to create files and folders in the public drive and only allow that user (creator/owner) the ability to edit/delete the objects, while giving all of group1 users the ability to read.
I believe this was setup originally so that creator/owner had modify rights while group1 users had read only. I dont know if the permissions ever really worked, but recently users complained of problems with the configuration - group1 users were modifying files they did not create.
1. I need to know if this configuration is indeed possible.
2. If possible, is there a method of resetting the existing files and folders to re-apply the permissions as described above?
