Hi i am a level1 enginner unfortunately there is no senior engineer here at the moment so i am in the deep end as such, i had a new user start in a company we deal with, i had too give him permissions too access a folder on the derver its like there public drive, i done thid but inadvertantly locked out everyone else, but i rectified that, but now when when there data is been backed up by the external company it is backing up way too much data, its like i  made more files available or something i dont know what i done or how too fix it, any ideas what i could do, when i go into the folder properties too have it shard with everyone i have there names individually in there i dont think thats rite tho

I am assuming you are using A.D. Perhaps there is a group that you can use to put in the permissions section of the public folder instead of putting each individual user. Also did you verify that you set the correct folder to share? Also check your backups and see what the permissions are set to on there.
