Ok... heres the scenario.
We have a departmental share. \\server\share.
Within that each team has their own directory which DOES NOT inherit the root permissions of the share. Each teams directory should have an ACL specific to the team. Some of the teams directory ACL's have not been set correctly.
Our teams directory was set to just limit access to us and our IT support. Unfortunately one of our users managed to drag it into another teams directory. It was located, and moved back to the root of the share.
However, I just checked the NTFS on our directory ACL and its not what it was before.
question 1 - if you move directory purposely or unintentionally from root of a share, to inside another teams directory, then move it back. Does it scoop up the ACL from within that other teams ACL. As thats what seems to of happened.
question 2- what does a grey tick next to an NTFS ACL option represent. For example, our group has solid black ticks next to the various NTFS options, but theres another group on their, with a grey faded tick next to the NTFS ACL options. Just wondered if thats relevant.
