Windows 7: Share folder settings not being applied to all files within path

Share folder settings not being applied to all files within path

Hi,

I have an SMB share set up but certain files within the path do not have the same share settings as others.

The path is set up to my TV folder and an example of the issue is below

TV/Walking Dead/Season 1 - this works all files can be seen
TV/Walking Dead/Season 2 - I can see the folder and open it but I can't see any of the files within it.

When I go to the files and look at properties -> security the files I can see and those I can't see have different settings. The files i can see are shared to Everyone, System, My login, Administrators.

The files I can't see are shared with Authenticated users, System, Administrators, Users.

I've tried removing the share from my TV folder than reapplying it, but I get the same result.

If I attempt to view the files over SMB windows to windows it works, but it doesn't work when viewed from my XBMC live install (Linux).

Any ideas on what is happening?

It sounds like you need to add "Everyone" to either the sharing permissions list or the Security settings.

There are hardly any options in the advance window and defiantly not anything that looks like it would copy the setting from previous folder.

I can get round it by selecting all the individual files and then sharing them, but it still seems a little strange that they don't have the correct share to start with.

I've found a folder that has some files viewable and some not. It might be that the permissions are set differently on the files at source, before i download them.

I believe he is referring to the advanced permission settings where you can replace the child object permissions with inheritable permissions as shown in the picture. You have to click on Advanced permissions then use the Change Permissions tab.

It may also be that you need to take ownership of the folders or files first.
