Our organization is in the process of migrating to SharePoint 2013, and we are experiencing a strange issue and we're unsure if it is intended behavior.
We have a document library with several sub folders. We are granting access to folders via different SharePoint groups.
The problem is that when users click on a link to one of sub folders that they do not have access to they are not receiving the "Access Denied" error. Instead, they are able to get into the folder itself, but they are not seeing any of the documents. The only time they are getting an "Access Denied" error is if we point them directly to a document within a folder.
Just to be clear, the access is being granted at the folder level, and they only have "limited access" on the document library level.
We have done a lot of searching and can't find anything specific to this issue, so I thought I'd post it.
