Folder Permissions - Inheritance
Posted on 2014-08-12
I have a top level folder (X drive) that has three groups and no inheritance.
Under X: is about 20 more folders with several deep.
I want to add a new group to X top level and have RWM rights throughout all folders (X Drive All Access)
The everyone (list) is also at the top level (X)
When I added my new group to X it was added to only a few folders/subfolders on the next level down.
I went to advanced and change... I see I can push inheritance, it looks like it might push all groups.
(Or will it just push the my new group if highlighted?)
To play it safe I am adding the new group on all the subfolders 1 layer under the drive root.
Basically I only want my new group that has read, write, modify to be forced down the other folders without adding other groups at the top level like the everyone (list).
