I logged on one of the server (Windows Server 2008 R2) and created a new folder called
Test. I shared this folder using 'Advanced Sharing' which automatically gives 'Read' control to Everyone on this folder.
I also created a file called
aa.txt inside this new folder.
If I look at the Security tab for file aa.txt, it shows these users -
SYSTEM (Full control) Niki (this is My account and is having Full control) Administrators (Full control) Users (Read & Execute permission)
Because I can see full permission for myself, I was assuming that I should be able to modify this file from my local machine (as I have shared the parent folder)
From my local machine, yes I can access the file aa.txt. However, getting Access Denied error when trying to modify it. To make it work, I had to give myself 'Change+Read' permission using Advanced Sharing in Sharing tab.
Shouldn't it allow me to modify earlier as I was having full control on the file?
