Dear All
I want to make a script (VBS)
that changes the NTFS permissions
for a shared folder from the default (EveryOne-FullControl)
to be owned by  two domain users by name (Usere1 , and User2)and the should have Full Control ,and EveryOne should read Only

If you can also help me on how to set a limit on the size of the folder,i'll be really Grateful

Thanx

Usually I've done all of these with resource kit tools. XACLS does what you need for the NTFS permissions, and can be launched from VBScript. Probably there's also a tool for viewing/modding the folder size.
But there may be native VBScript command for both of them too...
