NTFS security - Folder Security

Hi!
I don't want the users in the network to be able to create, delete og remove folders at root level at our server.

We have 6 folders at root level which "domain users" are NOT supposed to create, move or delete files or folders at this level. (Wich they often do by mistake)

All users are members of "domain users".

I have tried to give the users restricted acces to the folders, but it has not succeded.
Eighter they gets denied, or they still get full access.

 Sharing permissions tab shows "Domain Users" "Full Control" , "Change" , " Read".
Security tab shows "Authenticated Users" and "Domain Users" - Modify - Read & Execute - List Folder Contents - Read - Write.

Advanced Settings: Access Control Settings: Deny "Users" , Deny "Authenticated Users" - Change permissions , take ownership.

I have tried to deny "create folders / append data , create files / write data. I applied the settings by using " Apply these permissions to objects and/or containers within this container only".      I am not getting the result I'm looking for.
Usually users don't get enough user rights, and I have to reset to "full access" so that everyone can start working again.

As mentioned above, I want to be able to deny users to do anything about the folders at root level. (6 folders which are shared). All users have mapped this folders by a loggon script. The users are not supposed to create files in theese 6 folders or above eighter.

My settings like they are right now is working in a way taht everyone gets access to the files. This is a temporary solution. Looking for a good solution. We have only 33 employees.


Anyone with long experience within this field?

just give read access to your "authenticated users" at root level (folder security). that will do the trick.

btw... you will need to break rights inheritance in subfolders, because permission will be propagated..

And if your users are members of other group, like domain users, and this group have access, they will get access to it anyways. I would give read access to "domain users", and full access to administrators. that'S it, nothing else.

Make the Root Folders "read only"
then inside the folders change the permissions of the folders/files to the security that you have.  

make sure that the child folders dont inherit permissions from the parent..

example:

root1:    <- read only
- child1:  <-- full control
- child2:  <-- full control

root2:    <- read only
- child1:   <-- full control
- child2:   <-- full control




basically the design is make sure the door to the room is secure, but the information behind the door is wide open once the people are inside.

I am not sure about your config.

You say "I want to be able to deny users to do anything about the folders at root level. (6 folders which are shared). All users have mapped this folders by a loggon script."  

Which folders are actually shared on your server?
Is there one shared folder that contains the 6 folders?  
Or are there 6 different shared folders?

If all 6 folders are shared individually, then the only way they could get to the root (i.e. above those share points) is if there is another share defined for the root itself.

What are your client computers?  This can make a difference.

How do you map the drives?  Can you post the net use commands from the login scripts?
