Check the share permissions likewise because they would finest be set to full regulate, I think most people collection their permissions to full regulate on the share side and also then usage the file and also folder to set perms bereason you get even more control

Seems odd that that would certainly be the instance for multiple files, yet i think it does take priority over doprimary pergoals. Somepoint to inspect at leastern.
