    Rights to folder hierarchy

    If I give someone write access to a share that is in fact a drive, do they then have right to write to any folder on that drive, including any that were not specifically giving rights? Does that apply whether the user is "regular", has administrator rights, or is the Administrator?

    Regards,

    Chuck,

    It all depends on how you setup the Share Permissions in the Advanced Sharing Tab and what group you assign them to.

    SO then, RG, sharing rights will 1) trickle down to any and all folders below the location the share was actually created at, and 2) override rights that, if the owner of a specific folder or file is different that that of the share, the owner had originally placed?

    E.g., if I have r/w rights at the root level, then I have r/w/ rights for that entire drive?

    Chuck,

    It is my understanding that Local Permissions override Inherited Permissions. Thus, if a folder down the line from the root of the share has local permissions applied they will override the inherited permissions from the root share. Also you can not share at the document level using Workgroups (peer-to-peer) networking. I think file level control is available when using a Domain Server but don't quote me on that one! HTH
