RE: Share and NTFS permissions

One way you can set custom permissions on new files is to use the file
screens feature in Win2003 R2. You could create a file screen for all new
files, have that screen run a script and that script can set permissions and
can be as elaborate as you want.

Of course, this does introduce a bit of a race condition but that would only
be for the creator/owner. It may not work for every situation.

I mentioned this technique recently in my blog:

Change the file's Ownership to Administrator, and be done with it.

Simple yet effective.

And have the likely side-effect of removing access from the original owner.
I'd suggest taking a more thorough approach. This is why I originally wrote:

"it takes ownership of anything showing up there, ****and sets an ACL the
admin finds appropriate****"
