the user sees snapshots, but no files in them.

on the fs itself:

# ls -la .snapshots/189
total 8
drwxr-xr-x  1 root   root          32 Jun 19 11:00 .
drwxr-x--x+ 1 root   root         208 Jun 19 11:00 ..
-rw-------  1 root   root         187 Jun 19 11:00 info.xml
drwxrwx---  1 nobody domain users 478 Apr 15 08:01 snapshot

so a member should be allowed to traverse

in snapper

ALLOW_USERS="user1 sgw"
ALLOW_GROUPS="domain\ admins"

but this seems not to be applied to the snapshots, right?

I currently don't see on which layer I should act at first.

Does "previous versions" in Windows access as the actual AD user or as 
somebody else?
