Random files losing NTFS Permissions


S

Sam Brown

I have several users that recently started losing NTFS permissions to
directories. As a solution, if I go to the Parent directory and give the
full control permissons, apply, then remove them, their read permissions and
other permissions to child directories are restored back to normal.

Also when this happens the have permissions to directories they normal don't
have. After the above describe "fix". The wrong permissions go away. Any
ideas on this, or more permanent fixes?

Can you document one such case by doing this:
1. Open a Command Prompt.
2. Navigate into the problem directory.
3. Type these commands:
cacls ..\ > c:\test.txt
calcls "NameOfProblemFile" >> c:\test.txt
4. Apply the first part of the fix you described above (give full
permissions).
5. Type these commands:
cacls ..\ >> c:\test.txt
calcls "NameOfProblemFile" >> c:\test.txt
6. Apply the second part of the fix you described above (restore original
permissions).
7. Type these commands:
cacls ..\ >> c:\test.txt
calcls "NameOfProblemFile" >> c:\test.txt
8. Type this command:
notepad c:\test.txt
9. Paste the contents of test.txt into your reply.
