NTFS Permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • if a user has been given following NTFS permissions:

    Allow Modify, Allow Read & Execute, Allow list folder contents, Allow Read, Allow Write

    Now he is able to access the folder, and read the files stored there, but he has been unable to save changes back to the server. What is the most likely cause of the problem?

  • One possible reason, although I can't say if it is the "most likely", is that the user is a member of a group that has been denied the write permission on that folder.

    I'd suggest posting this question in one of the Technet Windows Server forums, rather than the Training and Certification forum.

  • Another reason could be:

    You gave the rights on the folder but when the user tries to modify the file, the rights of the file are important.

    So at the moment there can be multiple reasons for this:
    a) The rights was just on the folder and was not set for the content of the folder. (This is something you could see in the advanced window)
    b) Someone took the right away (setting the deny of the rights and this will override the permissions granted)
    c) The file could be marked as read only. So even if the use had rights on the file, the system will not override it as long as you do not remove the read only flag.

    And of course: A technet forum regarding NTFS / Permissions / Operating systems could be much better than the training and certification forum.

  • Check the share permissions. when you share a folder in Windows 2003/2008, by Default  Everyone group has read permission. so even you'll give Modify permissions in security ACL share, the user will not be able to modify files.
