[pmwiki-users] Permission problems on Windoze 2008

A few months ago I migrated from Win 2000 to Windows Server 2008, which 
is essentially a server version of Vista.

PmWiki runs exactly the way it did before ... or so I thought. Any files 
that are uploaded via PmWiki are visible in PmWiki, but they are not 
visible when I mount the server share on my desktop machine.

Files uploaded under Win2K give permissions to "Everyone" (that is a 
Windows user group) while those uploaded under Win2008 do *NOT* give 
permission to "Everyone".

This is a huge annoyance when trying to clean up upload directories, 
because I can't just mount the share and start deleting. I now have to 
make a VNC connection to the machine.

Note that if I drag-copy a file to the mounted share, it does get 
"Everyone" permissions!

Does anyone have a solution for this?
