I have a folder structure that allows the ownercreator of a file full permission to their work and everyone else just rights to view. This person works in a group and wants the group to have full permission to each other?s work and only their work. A creates a file, B & C have full rights to A, B & Cs work. Everyone else in the office only has view rights and A, B & C only have full permission for any work created by either A, B or C. Is this possible? thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You would have to setup that group there own network share (or at least there own folder in the existing network share) and setup that folder to give the group modify rights to it and all the files within it.

    The folder are all different thought a folder structure. When the user creates the document the program files it into the appropriate folder. Right now the permissions are full for the creator and read only for everyone else. I want to be able to have the other two people that work with her have full access to her work and vice versa. The permission needs to be set for each document and not through inheritance. I could give them full access to the folder but then they would have full access to everyone else's file. I need something along the lines of someone belonging to a group, when they create a document they will have full access and so will everyone else in her group.

    I assume that this is some sort of inhouse built or vendor provided application and not an off the shelf application (like Word or Excel)? If so you'll need to build (or have this functionality built) this into the application.

    Yes, this is a custom built application. It would have seemed like an easy task at the beginning but has turned out to anything but!

    I'm afraid to say that your solution will need to be to modify the application so that when the file is written the correct domain group is granted NTFS rights to the file. Why not modify the app, so that users who shouldn't have rights to the file aren't given the option to see/open the file. That way you don't have to worry about modifying the NTFS rights at all.
