Okay...user A and user B both have admin privileges. User A creates a sharefolder and adds user B to full control of all folder. When trying to access the folder, B cannot so A needs to go back and add B into the security list as well! NOW, B is able to see and open documents.... But here is the main problem - any new document added to the folder from A, B cannot open. It says B does not have access permission or something like this. However, if A goes and removes B and adds B again in permission, B can now access this new file.

What the heck is going on??? First of all I thought you only had to add someone in the "permissions" area and not in the Security area. I believe Security should be only you(A), admin and computer.

Any help on this????

BTW this is WIN XP SP2 or 2 Professional Ed.

Hmmm, if User A and User B are both Administrators then try giving permissions to the Administrators group as a whole rather than just to individual users.

Yeah, both A and B are local admins on their own PCs. Do you think it will still work? I guess I will give it a shot.

Aside from the share folder itself, any other ideas where a problem might be happening?

It's difficult to say. Permissions on Windows NT 4 and higher, using NTFS, are more confusing and tangled than a plate full of spaghetti. It could be inheritance, it could be that your computer is plotting your eventual demise so that it can assume your identity and slowly take over the world. Such is the complexity of Windows Folder Permissions.

Andrew I just realized that the Admin group also has full privileges. The thing is when I try this with others it is working perfectly. I believe there is something in "A's" PC which might be doing this but I have NO clue as to what it could be.

Are both PC's on a domain or a simple LAN?

Make sure you're using the domain usernames, rather than local names to assign permissions. Domain usernames are like this: username@domain

So if your domain is called bar and the user is foo, you'd put foo@bar.
