I think I'm having some difficulty understanding NTFS permissions. My understanding is that when possible you want to avoid assigning a specific user account to NTFS and instead use a group. So I set up a folder with the owner as the administrators group. I removed all user accounts on the folder and added the administrators group with full control.
I'm logged into the computer as user that belongs to the administrators group. But when I open the security properties on the folder is says, "you must have read permissions to view the properties of this object." I can click Advanced and Continue and edit the properties, but unless I specifically add my user account to the permissions or make my user account the owner, I get the above message. Yet my account is part of the administrators group. Shouldn't those permissions propogate? Why would I have to assign my user account specifically, when I've assigned a group that my account belongs to? Thanks!
