General LAN– Folder Read Only?

My wife’s work cell has a folder on her departments LAN drive, and wishes the folder to be "Read Only" for her cell personnel. The information is not sensitive; however, it should not be made available for others outside the cell.

She was told by her departments IT person, that he cannot make her cells folder Read Only just for her personnel, and refuses to go to the LAN manager and ask, as he stated it’s a stupid question.

I feel that it can be done, and suspect that this IT person, is not being completely honest about this issue, however, I would like some clarification.

Can it be done, and/or is it a difficult process?

All guidance welcome.

This is one of the easiest things you can do. On the server just goto the folder in question, right click, select properties, then select the "Security" tab. From that screen you can add users and select the access level including read only.

Sounds like this tech is just being difficult. Good luck!
