Hello friends

We have windows server 2003 server for storing files and folders. here we have assign Full access permissions to some folders and files to particular person. it was working fine befor, now a days it is getting problem to open the some files and folders to that person. as a sys admin when I also check that file it says access denied or the file is read only. than I have to go to that perticular file or folder and properties, than I will take the ownership process, therafter it will opens the file/folder without any problem.

please help me to sort out the problem permanently.

thanks in advance.

✔ Best Answer
Your question is not quite clear. Are you saying that the user has problems accessing the files or that the Administrator does?

If the latter, this - depending upon the permissions you have assigned - is quite normal. For example, by default an Administrator cannot access files in the user's home directory withoust taking ownership of them. This behaviour is not accidental - it is a good security measure.

if the file is one that that user was able to access earlier, and now access is denied, then some person or process must have changed the permissions. You might want to enable file auditing on that folder for a while to capture a log of what is happening.

Sounds like you are setting ntfs rights and not folder/share rights. When the user writes a new file its getting the permissions on the folder/share which are insufficient.

No user needs full control. Modify is sufficient.
