I'm in IT at our company. Another IT associate and I are gritting our teeth because something on our fileserver that should be super simple isn't working the way we think it should.
We have added a Revenue Audit user, we'll call him Master Chief, to a folder under the Accounting folder. On the Accounting folder, we have granted Master Chief "Read and Execute", "List folder contents", and "Read". On the folder below that, the folder he needs into, we've granted him "Modify". This was set up some time ago and he's been using it for months.
Today, however, when he accesses the documents in that folder, they appear as "Read Only". We've checked his securities on the folder and the individual files. The folder isn't set to receive securities from the parent. We, in DOS, removed all "Read Only" attributes to that folder and it's subfolders. Then, we ran a query and it couldn't find any "Read Only" files or folders in that directory. Back at Master Chief's PC, we did another test and still could only open the documents as "Read Only". As a last and silly resort, we rebooted his machine after making those changes but we are still stuck.
What gives? Why does the system think he has "Read Only" access when we are clearly looking at his permissions seeing that he has "Modify"? Have any of you run across this issue before? If so, we could sure use some help here.
Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.
