Hi,

I'm doing some practise for my MSCE exam and one questions is:

Have folder structure Marketing(shared as MRKT)\Summary\Reports.  Users
should not be able read, modify or add files in Marketing or Summary folders,
but need to have access to files in Reports folder.

The answer was "traverse folder/execute files" was minimum perms required on
Marketing and Summary folders in order to let users get to Reports folder.

However with just this perms I get access denied, I needed to add "list
folder contents" perm in order to get it to work.  Does this seem right or
should the traverse permission work on its own?

TIA,
BW
