So we have this issue where users are getting Access denied when trying to access shares they have permissions to and have been working in, no other changes have been made, not sure what could be causing the issue, everyone full access share permissions and security groups for NTFS

Is it the share they can't access, or a file or folder inside the share?

Has the time drifted by five minutes between the server, domain controllers, and/or client workstations?  Are you domain controllers up and healthy?

whats weird is I have the folder owner as a security group, if i add them to that group they can access the files, but not when they are part of the other 2 security groups that are added with modify permissions

So they can open the shared folder.  What permissions do they have at the share level?  Is it possible a group exists that denies permission to the file and folders inside the share?

ok, on the root directory, theres 2 listed in Share permisions "Everyone" with read, and then domain users with full control, then on the directory in question there are 2 groups, a file administrator security group with full access(user not part of), then another security group with  modify that the user is part of. (NTFS)

ok, found the issue, seems someone changed the security groups and didn't push inheritance down to the child objects, which would explain the access to folder but not files.
