I have a user who has read only permission on a folder. I am trying to allow the user to modify only 1 file within the folder. For the folder, her permissions are tied to a security group. I left that alone and directly on the file, i gave her modify permission. She is unable to save changes unless i give her modify rights on the whole folder which then allows her to modify all files within. Please advise if this is possible and if so, how to properly set the permissions.

Platform of file server is Windows Server 2003 SP 2.
