View Full Version : Folder Permissions for non-empty and linked folders

I've discovered that the Permissions capability only applies to folders that are empty, and can only be set on folders that are explicitly defined in the Files & Folders list (cannot assign permissions to linked folders). I believe the empty folder requirement probably stems from the fact that a file within the folder may be written before the folder object is encountered, thereby ignoring the Permissions set for that Folder object.

Is there a way to control the order of installation so that a series of empty folders can be built with correct permissions before any of the files within those folders are installed?

Is there another approach that works?
