hi

due to our shared network drives being in a total mess, i have decided to setup a new folder structure. My question is, is it possible ton give users Write access to documents within this folder structure but prevent them creating/modifying the folder structure itself???

Thanks
Barry

Modify the Advanced NTFS permissions on the shared folder, you'll be able to set more granular access controls that way.

As BloodRed suggests:

On the Folder, under Advanced permissions, apply read access to the folder only and apply write permissions to "Files Only"

Yes. Only available on NT, not Win9x.  Do write protect folders not files then.
