    okay, scenario ::

    there's a share on 'the_server' called 'the_share'.

    user1 has full permissions, and user2 only has modify..

    user1 creates a file test.txt in \\the_server\the_share\.

    Administrator then makes user2 the owner.

    The question ::

    Am I right in thinking that user2 will still only have modify permissions on test.txt as the permissions associated with owner, are only actually 'creator-owner', meaning that user1 will still have full control over test.txt and user2 will only have modify..?

    Thanks alot.

    I think they will be able to modify th ACL to change permissions once they have be given ownership

    ...so Admin made user2 the owner of 'the_share' ?

    It depends on whether or not Admin has set child folders to inherit the permissions that are set on 'the_share'

    By default, child-folders are not set to inherit permissions.

    But yes, if you are using the dafeult settings and purely changing what you have said (an no-one then goes to further modify anything), then what you have assumed is correct as the 'modify' only would over-rule the 'owner'...
