Please help - User accessing file with unique permissions moves all accessible files RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an O365 account with a sharepoint library. One of the folders is set to restricted, so most of the users can't access it. However there are a few files that a particular user needs to access. These specific files/folders have been shared with that user. But whenever they open the link to the shared file/folder, suddenly ALL files/folders that have been shared with this person inside of the restricted folder are outside of the restricted folder and in the main sharepoint library. The user did not edit anything - just opened the link. How can this be avoided?

    Thank you

  • My be they are being redirected to view where all documents without folder are listed.


    Check the views in that document library and see if default view has this setting enabled.

  • Darn - that setting is not enabled so don't think that's it, but thanks for the suggestion.
