*** I AM REPORTING A SIGNIFICANT AND LASTING BUG IN THIS EARLY RELEASE ***

This BUG will effect any WINDOWS user that has any folder in your dropbox folder with explicitly assigned windows user permissions. This BUG is sadly in the release version also :(

And is being ignored in the beta build release notice threads (THIS THREAD)

 

I post here after contacting DROPBOX directly as they DO NOT UNDERSTAND.

They just sent me a set of icacls commands that ignored the issue totally!

 

Steps to replicate the fault

Create a "NEW FOLDER" in your dropbox folder.

Add a explicit user permission to the folder "OtherUser with Read & Execute rights"

Add a file to the folder via the web interface or another syncing device.

Check the permission on the uploaded file, no explicit permission exists.

 

I have completed this and supplied images showing the folder explict permission for OtherUser and the uploaded via the web interface example file that does not have the explict permission.

See below...

I post here as any one would think the Dropbox app was created in germany as it seems that any mention of a fault in a released version just gets a head buried in the sand reply of "I see nothing!" (Shultz from Hogans Heroes).

 

Can others please cast your coin if you can replicate this.
