sbs 2011 folder permissions / shares, etc.

on an SBS 2011 standard server we have a folder called folder1

It is shared as folder1 and f1

there's a file in there that is the only file I want a group (group B) to be able to access.  that file has ntfs permissions of full.

the NTFS permissions for the folder for group b is special permissions, click on advanced and it says

allow groupb list folder / read data  not inherited  this folder only.

from that user's machine, if I type \\server\f1, I see all the files / subfolders in folder1 (but can't open any other than that 1 file).

if I type \\server\folder1, it shows only that 1 file.

Any thoughts on why 2 shares pointing to the same folder on the server show different results when browsing to it?

Hi,

As the same folder is shared with 2 different share name. Kindly check the sharing permission which is assinged to differnet share name as it might be different.
