I have a folder A and inside two files B and C

What I need is that the user "XPTO" as access to read B and write on C.

Usually I give the permission "list folder contents" on folder and then give a write access on the file for the user and then I create a shortcut on desktop.

What is happening now is that if I give write permission on Folder the user can write on the file if I just give read permission on folder he is not allow to make change on the file even if a change the file permissions and give write permissions only on that file. I already test disabling inheritance and keep in the same way.

  • What do you have configured for the Share permissions? – joeqwerty Apr 19 '16 at 19:36

Inheritance is enabled by default. You would approach a situation like that as following:

  1. Open the folder's Security Settings.
    enter image description here
  2. Add the user to the list. By default Allow is checked for Read, List Folder Contents and Read & Execute.
  3. Click OK and close the window.
  4. Open the Security Settings for file C.
  5. The user should already be listed as the file inherits the folders security settings. Select the user and click on Allow Modify.
  6. Click OK and close the window.
