I have been beating my head against the wall on this issur for days and I'm hoping someone has an answer. I have been developing a new sharepoint site and all has gone smoothly until I went to set permissions. When that was all complete, I sent links to some end users who were in the groups I had set up with specific permission levels. Some of the links should have been accessible by the users. Others should not have been.
I have one user who emailed back saying I can see everything. Open every link. To the extent I can read the audit, it supports what he says. But when I go into permissions on one of these restricted folders and use the "Check Permissions" function and type the users name in, SharePoint returns that the user has no permissions in the restricted folder. The user is also NOT a site collection admin.
My question is how to make sense out of the user claiming he has absolute access to all material and sharepoint saying he has no access to restricted folders. My helpdesk is puzzled, and frankly so am I. Thoughts are welcomed.

Is it possible there is a User Policy set on the web application in Central Admin?
