I have crated SharePoint Mapped Folder _layouts/myfolder in Visual Studio and I have added an allmost empty aspx page.

User1 has no rights on root site collection (http://mydomain)

I have created a Workspace with break inheritance (unique inheritance) and I have added User1 to it as Administator.

When I log in as User1 to the WorkSapces and then browse to http://mydomain/_layouts/myfolder/mypage.aspx I get access denied. I dont want to add user1 to the root site collection. thanks for your advice
