I have a picture library and I want to implement different permissions for users on the different levels in the library. But as soon as I break the inheritance for one folder strange things start to happen. Folders and pictures that were already uploaded would disappear. And I can no longer upload pictures in the library.
So I created a new library and created 3 nested folders in the following order: [picture_library]/[folder_level1]/[folder_level2]/[folder_level3]
Then I broke the inheritance of permission for [folder_level3]. As soon as that happens i can no longer see folder_level3 and if i try to upload something in the same level (inside folder_level2) i get an error.
After investigating a bit I found that the url in the address bar was broken:
Notice that the query string parameters are doubled and there is a double '&' before the second ones. The correct query string is the second one witch "RootFolder" parameter points to [folder_level2] but somehow sharepoint carries the parameters from the folder on the previous level. When I remove the first set of parameters it works fine and all is well.
So finally, my question is have anyone encountered such a problem before? Is it a bug and how can i fix it? Thanks in advance.
PS: Actually I've just noticed that this issue exists only in Details view and not in Thumbnail or Filmstrip.
