@grawity: I know it's accessible. It's just that full path part. I'm curious if there is a way to determine the full path when it is not known.

Good point on the anti-virus, many do indeed use the SYSTEM account. And @Psycogeek, not general installation, just a few storage folders.

True, but Everyone's permissions are explicitly removed on the folder in question.

They don't even need "Traverse folder," I just tested it works without it. Anyway my question really isn't does it work, I know it does. It's "could the user find the folder on their own, without knowing it beforehand?"

So it would be correct to assume that it is not possible for JohnDoe, given the constraints above, to determine subfolder's existence?

It may be a situation where they don't have explicit access to it, but are part of a group that would give them access. It's more of a curiosity than practicality question, as I've run across this situation a few times in real world setups and was curious as to it's limitations.

Your sentence "I've used a similar setup and it seems as though the users would stumble upon the directory" is a little ambiguous at best.
