I have a question related to folder access in a document library in SP 2013.
I have a Document Library with a folder structure as follows:
Document Library -Folder A -File 1 -File 2 -Folder B -File 3
If I grant access to File 1 to a user who's in a group that does not have access to the document library, they can access Folder A with a direct link and they will only see File 1 but NOT file 2, which is to be expected.
However if they open the Document Library containing both folders, Folder A is NOT displayed (which I'm assuming is because they do not have access to document library and the folders). This is a problem because there is no way for the user to drill down into the folder to find the file that they've been granted access to.
I believe this to be related to security trimming, as SharePoint is not correctly assigning the limited access to the folders in the Document Library.
Does anyone know if there is a site collection feature or site feature I need to disable/enable? I've tried disabling Limited-access user permission lockdown mode but that didn't seem to help.
