I have a folder on the root of my hard drive on my macbook that is shared by two local admin accounts on that same macbook.


When logged on as User A On that local folder I set the permision set as:

User A Read/Write

User B Read/Write

Everyone no accsess.


When user B logs on the the mac they and get info on that folder they see the same above permisions.


However when they create or edit a file, the file is not inheriting that folders permision setting above. Instead it is writing:


User B Read/Write

Wheel Read Only

Everyone Read Only


When this happes User A has problems with certain files.



How can I get it so that when user B creates or edits a file in the folder that user A has the correct permsisions?



Mac OS X (10.7.3)
