A user reports that a file they shared out on their computer for another network user is not
accessible to the third party. The user insists they specifically gave this third party Allow
rights for Read and Write access. Which of the following could explain the problem at
hand?

  • A. The parent folder has explicit Allow rights set for this user.
  • B. The parent folder has explicit Deny rights set for this user.
  • C. The user forgot to share the parent folder and only shared the specific file.
  • D. The parent folder likely has the “archive” attribute enabled.

What is The user forgot to share the parent folder and only shared the specific file.

Thms

Folder restrictions are stronger,than file,so If a folder is deny,then all files are.

While Deny always supersedes Allow, in this case we're assuming the parent folder has an explicit deny rule for this user. But since the file was explicitly set to allow for the user wouldn't that overrule the inherited rule from the parent folder?

No. To put it simply, since the file is within the folder, and the user doesn't have access to that folder, they have no way of getting to that file. Think about it this way. You are allowed access to one specific piece of paper, but that paper is locked in a filing cabinet. Without the key to that cabinet (folder permissions) you can't get at your piece of paper (file itself)
