Hi All,

I have a windows server 2008 RODC which is a shared print and file server at our
remote office.   So, when users try to access another person's folder it is just blank
showing nothing.   I have one user who wanted a shared folder among his team.  Originally,
I just had him on the folder when he was putting the information in the folder.
He later wanted to share it with 2 other users and gave me their names.
Well, I made a group for them and tried applying the group to the folder.  The new
users still can not see anything.  I took off the group and tried applying one of the users
directly to the folder - full control permissions.   The new user still can not see anything in
the folder.   The files are there and the original user can access them  Does anyone have any idea of what I've done wrong on this.   I don'thave this problem in my main office with shared files and permissions.


I would appreciate any help I can get on this.

Hello,

There will be permissions applied to another group of which these users are members causing the issue. The most restrictive permissions applied to these users will limit their access even though you have granted them full control.
