New Superuser - Setting permissions for a shared drive
Posted on 2001-08-02
I have inherited the task of assigning permissions for users on a shared drive. This responsibility comes with no documentation - go figure! Being the *new* superuser for this shared drive, I only have the ability to assign permissions for users once their account has been created. I can not create users or groups. Again, I can only assign permissions to existing users.
Being on Windows 2000, I have been instructed to use a "File Manager" program to assign permissions. I was told that using Explorer for permissions is basically unusable. So I have this "File Manager" App for assigning permissions.
I need to know the processes for modifying permissions for a user. Is there a resource on the Net I can reference? Either help using this File Manager or DOS Commands (with explanations) would be great. Any ideas? Thanks!
