Files and Folders default Owner inheritance RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all

    I have a folder structure on which I tried to change the onwer from the administrators group to another file admin group. That worked fine.
    My problem is now, if I create a new folder, the default owner is the administrators group! Why?

  • the default owner of a new folder is controlled by GPO

    Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\System Objects: Default owner of objects created by members of the Administrators group

    * Administrators group (default)
    * Object creator

    The folders are defaulting to Administrators group because you created them and you are an admin.

    Cheng the GPO and the folders will be owned by the creator.
