SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a folder structure as follows;

Root
-> SubFolder1
---> SubFolder2
------> SubFolder3

When i stop inheriting permissions at SubFolder3 and grant contribute permission to a user directly, MOSS 2010 grants the contribute permission to Root and all of its child folders. Is there a way to stop this?

1 Answer 1

Does it grant 'Contribute' permission or 'Limited Access'?

Basically if you do this in SubFolder3:

john smith permission level: contribute

Then it should do this in Root, SubFolder1 and SubFolder2

john smith permission level: limited access

This is just to show that the user has permissions in some area of the site.
