Hi Win7 team,
I think I've found a bug in Win7 (RTM) which worried me for the past couple of hours!
I was checking our file shares for any permission violations using the Effective Permissions tool on my Win7 desktop, and found that certain users who shouldn't have permissions are being reported as Full Control. When viewing these NTFS permissions on the win2k8 file server using Effective Permissions the tool reports no access (as it should). I have tried this on win2k3 and XP machines and Effective Permissions reports the correct permissions. On multiple Win7 clients the EP tool is reporting in correct values.
Can you please confirm that this is indeed a bug, or will there be a permissions issue if I deploy Win7 to my clients?

Thank you for reporting it.
Unfortunately, I cannot repro it on my side. Could you please offer a detail steps to reproduce the issue on a new folder? In the same time, please let me know if the issue occurs on all folders or a specific folder/scenario.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Yes the issue occurs with new dirs. Do you want to contact me off-list and I can supply screen shots?
email me mshadbolt [AT] lincolnindicators.com.au
Sorry for delay.
Could you please upload the screenshots to Skydrive and let us know the URLs?
I've attached two images - one is on a Windows 7 client, the other is via the 2008 server. For some reason the Effective Permissions are being reported incorrectly on the client.
