    Staff editing student home areas

    Hi all,

    There have been situations in the past where staff were editing work (adding comments and such) to files in the student home areas. This was never meant to be the case and was seen as an oversight on our part when we re-did the share. However, it seems this is now something the staff wish to be able to do. However, when they edit and save the file the student gets an 'Access Denied' message when trying to open the document afterward. The only way to fix this is to re-apply the 'Full Access' folder permissions. Is there another way around this?

    Thanks in advance.

    You could run a scheduled task to go through and make the students re-take ownership of their folders/files. Or you could use C# to make a filewatcher ( FileSystemWatcher Class (System.IO) ) to re-take ownership of the file when a staff member edits it.

    This method is just a work around, not an atcual fix. There may be a way but I don't know it yet.
