WinServer 2012 Standard Permissions not working

Im running Windows Server 2012 Standard and we copied all the DATA from an external NAS to a DATA partition on the D: of the server.

The Path looks like this

D:\epp\Shared_Folders
D:\epp\Private_Folders

Not every user can have write or read access.

Example.

D:\epp\Shared_Folder\hello
User 1 (write)
User 2 (read)
User 3 (deny no acces)

Ive setup the permissions and every user have full permissions on all folders. I tested this on a virtual demo environment and it works. Not sure why its not working on the server. Any suggestions?

What are your actual NTFS permissions for the folders? Do you have domain user or authenticated users groups listed in them? Are the files/folders inheriting permissions from parents correctly?

It looks like the issue came from a GPO. A colleage said he came across the same issue with WinServer 2012 and the GPOs caused it. Since we had only one active GPO we disabled it and the permissions worked. We also enabled the GPO since we do need it active and the permissions are still working.
