NTFS folder permissions query
Is there any way of protecting explicitly defined permissions for a sub-folder?
Example folder structure
\PERSONAL DATA (read/write)
\PERSONAL DATA\USER 1 (inherited read/write)
\PERSONAL DATA\USER 2 (inherited read/write)
\PERSONAL DATA\SHARED DATA (inherited read/write)
\PERSONAL DATA\SHARED DATA\CONFIDENTIAL (explicit read only)
\PERSONAL DATA\SHARED DATA\ACCOUNTS (inherited read/write)
\PERSONAL DATA\SHARED DATA\SALES (inherited read/write)
\PERSONAL DATA\SHARED DATA\TECHNICAL (explicit access to group)\PERSONAL DATA\SHARED DATA\LEGAL (explicit access to group)
If someone were to look at the permissions at the \PERSONAL DATA\SHARED AREA and choose to 'replace permissions entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects' this will force reinheritance again for the CONFIDENTIAL, ACCOUNTS, SALES, TECHNICAL and LEGAL sub-folders. The user is prompted to that effect, however mistakes happen especially when you're training less experienced support technicians.
Does anyone know of a way that we can stop the permissions from being reherited, via third-party software or tweak?
