File Permissions keep resetting...
Got a strange problem with file permissions on our 2008 R2 server.
The file is located in path \\server\shared area\department\excelfile.xls
Permissions on the excel file are currently inherited from the folder above.
I have to go advanced the change permissions and untick include inheritable perssmions.
This now allows me to edit the users who need access.
I set the sercuity permissions as,
SYSTEM = FULL
Administrators (server\administrators) = FULL
User 1 = Modify
User 2 = Modify
User 3 = Modify
User 4 = Modify
Now the problem appears
Any of the 4 users open the file, make a change and save. It resets the sercuity permissions, just wipes out what i set above.
When any of the users make that change they appear in the sercuity permissions with full control and become the owner.
Even if i go to advanced permissions and set a deny on the Take Ownership for the user it still over rides it.
Anyone see this before or am i missing something simple...
If you need anymore info just let me know.
Thanks Ben :)
