Dear expert

We are having problem with our files permission in windows 2008 r2 server.

Everytime the users create a new folder or a new file, the permission only set to users itself, others cant see it, I need everytimes recheck the inheritable permission to make all the permissions avaliable again.

Could anyone help me through this pain?
Thx

Right click on parent folder unders which user is creating new folders or files-------->Properties-------->Securities------->Advanced Permission-------->Select the security groups where all the users are member of it---------->Change the apply to , TO This folder,subfolder and files---------->Click ok

Once done Ask users to logoff and login back and check.

Are the users added to Security groups? Is the security group added to the ACL of the parent folder.?

When you go to advanced security tab , there will be Type,Name,Permission, Apply To.

SO I am asking is the Apply to is showing "This folder,subfolder and Files" Or it is just showing "This Folder"

IF possible please take the screen shot of advanced security settings and post it here.

Regards,

have you tried apply this

Go to the parent folder --> Properties --> Security --> Advanced --> Under Permissions Click Edit --> then Tick 'Replace all existing inheritable permissions on all descendants with the inheritable permissions from the this object" making sure that your users Permission is set to allow them to create folders and the permissions you want them to have.

Let us know if that helps

Not really working, the problem still occur, person create a new folder and the permission of that folder is set only the creator can see it, others cant, user didnt set this as he wants this way, this happens by default when creating new folder.

So when the users creates the folder and you go to Properties --> security --> Advanced what do you see under the permission entries. Please list all entries or maybe give a screen shot

It sounds like you have missed a step or a tick in the right place some where along the way.

under Properties -> security I see user's own account, nothing else, under Advanced, I also see user's own account, I need to add everyone in there then all the other accounts, groups show up correctly.

Can you replicate the fault by creating a brand new folder, possibly in the root of the server you are working on. Give Everyone access and then remove the access until you get the desired results.

Once this is working then check what you have done differently on the other folder.

I have never seen anything like that but it could have something to do with local admin users rights.

the problem seems to be isolated to office as we have already established that it isn't file permissions. Reload the app and lets see if the problem persists

FIxed by letting the NTFS permission setup to complete, you need to wait, or it can not set the new permission to the new files.
