WSS 3.0 List Permissions Lost

  Asked By: Ernest    Date: Aug 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3740

A user contacted me about having removed some A.D. group permissions from her
site that she thought were fishy. It turns out that the permissions were
"Limited Access" and now she has removed those A.D. groups from the ability to
see their appropriate sub-sites. The permissions were, apparently, very

Short of a restore from backup, is there any way to find what those permissions
were and reset/add them back?

The problem is that if she deleted the AD groups  even if she recreates them

SP 2010 Foundation and I would like to embed a Media Player - Can I find
how to do it? Not quite.... A Silverlight player is most obvious but I

The Silverlight Media Player web part and media library are only available in
SharePoint Server 2010, not Foundation. You will need a third party web part or
control to embed media in Foundation.
