File permissions inherited from one folder persist after the files are moved to another folder in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

Symptoms

Assume that you move files from one folder to another folder by using Windows Explorer on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. In this situation, the file permissions from the original folder may persist on the moved files.

This issue occurs when you define access control entries (ACEs) by using the same level of file permissions on the original folder and on the destination folder, but have group accounts that have different relative IDs (RIDs).

For example, you configure the following file permissions on two folders:

  • Folder1
    GroupA: Full Control
    GroupB: Read
    Administrators: Full Control

  • Folder2
    GroupC: Full Control
    GroupD: Read
    Administrators: Full Control

In this example, when you move files from Folder1 to Folder2, the files are supposed to inherit file permissions from Folder2. However, the file permissions from Folder1 incorrectly persist on the files.

Note If you change the file permissions for any of the ACEs on Folder2 (for example, you change the file permission for GroupD from Read to Write), the files correctly inherit file permissions from Folder2.

    Version

    Product

    Milestone

    Service branch

    6.1.760
    0.16xxx

    Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

    RTM
