I'm having sharing problems with my Shared Documents folder (i.e.,
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents). A few weeks back, I
purchased a bigger disk to replace my boot drive. A utility that came with
the disk supposedly cloned the current boot drive to the new drive. My old
drive became drive H while the new one became C. Everything seemed to be
working OK, until a limited account tried to open a file in Shared Documents
for read/write. It received a permissions error.

When signed in in Safe Mode as Administrator, I see that the persmissions on
the Shared Documents subfolders are being inherited from H:\Documents and
Settings\All Users\Shared Documents instead of the correct C:\Documents and
Settings\All Users\Shared Documents. How can I correct that?

Brian:
The way to go about this, is to make the C:\ drive independent from
the H:\ drive which is this case seem to be the parent drive.

To do this you need to remove the inherited permissions check mark
from C:\Properties\Security\Advanced\Permissions, "Inherit from
the main object permission entries, etc....

The following links have full details on how to do this, also about how
to asign sharing permisions just in case you need that info.

My Shared Documents folder is operational again. The articles you mentioned
were helpful for removing the incorrect inheritance. The most help in
restoring the correct permissions was simply starting my laptop, looking at
the permissions there, and duplicating them on the desktop machine where
they were wrong.
