Manage permissions for folder at site collection level RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We have a folder created at the root of site collection level (this folder is not under any document library) seems like it was created using SPD. Now I want to manage permissions for this folder. However I am not even able to navigate to the folder. http://servername.com/sites/test/images where images is the folder name created at the root site collection. Can anyone managed permission for such folders?



    Thanks, Bokes

  • Hi,

    This folder inherit permission from the site collection. If the user can edit the site in SharePoint designer, he will be able to see this folder and edit. If this folder is needed in your environment, I suggest move it to a library. It is much easier to manage a folder inside a library.
