On most of the windows 7 clients on our domain, when a user cuts a file from a low security folder and pastes it into a higher security folder on the same share the file inherits the the higher security permissions from its new parent folder.
However, one of our users has recently discovered that behavior changed on his computer so that the pasted files are now retaining their lower security permissions from their previous parent instead of inheriting the new ones.
My question is where is this behavior controlled on a windows 7 pro machine?
I see that you could alter the behavior of permissions inheritance on XP via a registry entry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer create a DWORD called MoveSecurityAttributes
but that doesn't seem to work on windows 7.
