Repairing inheritance

You may need to repair the inheritance on folders and files because some or all subfolders and files are not inheriting permissions correctly from their parent. Incorrect inheritance can include missing permissions, such as a subfolder missing an inherited permission from the parent, and unwanted extra permissions, such as a subfolder containing an extra inherited permission that is not present on the parent.

Open the NTFS Security module.

Creating test folders and files

To help you evaluate or troubleshoot issues, you can create a test folder that contains files and permissions.

Open the NTFS Security module.
Select Help | Create Test Folders and Files.
Click Create Evaluation Folders and Files. A message box appears asking if you want to apply a standard set of permissions to the folders and files.

Using log files

By default, there is one log file written to the Security Explorer installation directory. To get more log information, run Security Explorer.exe with /d key to write two log files to the installation directory.

For the Exchange Security module, the ExchangeAccess log files contain Exchange module log data.

Because Security Explorer is digitally signed, you may see event log entries when starting Security Explorer if the Update Root Certificates component is turned on and the computer cannot connect to the Windows® Update server on the Internet. The Update Root Certificates component automatically updates trusted root-certificate authorities from the Microsoft Update server at regular intervals.

To resolve this behavior, connect to the Internet, or turn off the Update Root Certificates component.

Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
Clear the Update Root Certificates check box, and continue with the Windows Components Wizard.
