    Is the user trying to access the local drive path, F:\Shares\FAC, or through a network share like \ServerName\FAC?

    If it's the network share, be sure to check the share permissions.

    Use the effective access tab to analyze the user in question's permissions to verify access.

    Since you delegated the permission only for the NTFS permission, the users will be able to access the folder when access the file locally.
    As MotoX80 mentioned above, If you access the folder by a network path like:\servername\shared folder ,we also need to share the folder and assign the share permissions to the user.

    Best Regards,

    Hi, as a attached screenshot you can see that the permissions is everyone for Share lever and custom for ntfs level.
    My user is in domain admins group and I have a "effective access" but to access on folder i must click on UAC warning message

    I found the solution:

    "You want to add this DWORD LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System with the value of 1."
