SYMPTOMS

On a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, you use the Ftp.exe program to download files to a local computer. Permission inheritance is enabled on the destination folder. However, the permissions of the downloaded files may differ from the permissions of the parent folder.

This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • The temporary (%Temp%) folder of the current user and the destination folder reside on the same partition.
  • The temporary folder and the destination folder have different permissions.

CAUSE

When you use the Ftp.exe program to download a file, the program first creates a temporary file in the %Temp% folder. After the file is downloaded successfully, the Ftp.exe program moves the file to the destination folder. If the %Temp% folder and the destination folder reside on the same partition, moving the file does not change the file permissions of the downloaded file. Therefore, the downloaded file in the destination folder inherits the file permissions of the %Temp% folder instead of the file permissions of the parent folder.

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 file information notes
Important Windows Vista hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows Vista" is listed on the Hotfix Request page. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows Vista" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.
  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table.

    6.0.600 2 . 22xxxWindows Vista and Windows Server 2008SP2LDR
  • Service Pack 1 is integrated into the release version of Windows Server 2008. Therefore, RTM milestone files apply only to Windows Vista. RTM milestone files have a 6.0.0000.xxxxx version number.
  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 and for Windows Vista" section. MUM files and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
