Minimum NTFS Permissions for Office Files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    What are the minimum permissions that a user must have on a file and it's path in order to be able to open it with a Microsoft Office application?

    I have granted a user full control on a network folder (and subfolders and files) and traverse permissions on the folders above that one. The user is able to open the folder but when she tries to open a file with Word she gets a message stating that the file is corrupt.

    Thank you,
