OK - I know this can be done, I just forgot how to do it and I can't get it to work.  Here is what I need.  I have one main share mapped to the users profile called p:\public.  Under public there are a number of folders that represent each department.  What I want to do using share permissions and Security assignment, is allow all users access to the "P" drive, but not the ability to write, i.e. create new folders at the top level.  However, I do want to allow the users to write to their own department folders.  Is this possible.  I think this has been done, I just get things muddled up between share and security.  Thanks.  Oh, if you haven't gathered the network is W2K.

The easy solution here is to create multiple shares and permission the independently.

IE. the P:\Public grant Read Only. Then make and Accounting Share, and map on memebers of the Account Dept. to this share allowing them write access. This way the user has two seperate shares. Read on one and Write on the Other.


Otherwise, you will need to set the top level share to read only, AND MAKE SURE THE SUBFOLDER DO NOT INHERIT PERMISSIONS FROM PARENTS! That is the Key. Make sure that the share to P have Full Access, and then use actual folder permission to limit writing to only Admins (or whoever you want) and then permission the subfolder to have write access dependent on user or group.

Either of these should work. Let me know if you have any problems or further questions.
