    Hi there,

    Quick question for work purposes....

    If you have assigned a group permissions to a folder, which have then been inherited by various child objects, would it be possible to remove the permissions without using the "Replace permission entries on all child objects" tick box?

    Cheers

    You could just remove the Groups that the Permissions belong to from the ACL and leave yourself with Creater Owner, Users, System and Admin.

    Hi

    If I have read you correctly, you should be able to remove the permission entry that you added in, and this should remove the implicit permission on the child objects.

    As far as I'm aware you can "copy" the permissions to the subfolders (attempt to remove the inherited permissions and you'll get a prompt) then re-set the permissions on all folders at a lower level for those users whom you wish to have access.

    Else, google is your friend. :p

    Go to advanced, double-click on the group and change the apply onto to "This folder only". Or check "apply onto this container only". Play around with it and you can see what it will propagate to.
