File permissions changingLocked
We run an NT4.0 with SP6 network, and are having a problem with certain file permissions being retained. Here’s the scenario:
We have an Excel 97 file that is accessible to all staff that we use for project time allocation forecasting. The staff input their projection into the spreadsheet, and the info is linked to another Excel file set up as a “summary” housed within the same “wide open” (security-wise)folder on the network. The “summary” file is to be restricted to being accessed by our project managers and certain admin. staff only, not the whole organization.
I have granted “CHANGE” access (minus DELETE) to the file for the appropriate staff, and the permissions hold fine for that day. When I come into the office the next morning, the permissions have been changed to “FULL CONTROL” for the Everyone group.
None of the staff say they’re doing anything with the “summary” file, so it must be a system thing somehow. We’re using Veritas Backup Exec 8.6 nightly, and I’m wondering if it’s somehow overwriting/clearing the permissions that I set during the backup routine.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
