I have a network with Shared folders, only certain groups are supposed to get into them, but when I test a new account, it would seem that the new account can get into the folders even tho the name is not in any group associated with the folder. I am not sure what is going on.

What do the sharing and NTFS permissions for the folder look like? –  Chris McKeown May 22 '12 at 15:30
How are you testing? Remote or local? –  MichelZ May 22 '12 at 15:50
Cached account information when testing...? –  Bart Silverstrim May 22 '12 at 15:54
