Sharing/Security Information for folders and subfolders
Posted on 2004-10-07
I have few questions arised in my mind which are as follows:
(1) I have Windows 2003 Server installed in my Server. My clients are connected with the domain. I have created a shared folder for every users and assigned permission to specific users as read only or Full Access etc. I know we can have subfolder(s) within the shared folder. Can I assign permission to that subfolder different from the shared root folder. How can I do that?
The subfolder should not be shared. The subfolder should inherit the sharing from the root folder.
Example: If my root shared folder has full access permission for everyone or for a specific user and I want to assign for a specific user No Access or Read only permissions on the subfolder. How can I assign a different permission on the subfolder(s)for specific users?
(2) What is the difference between the Permissions in Sharing Tab and the Security TAB of folder propertise?
(3) I have a file in the shared folder of my domain. It has Read Only permission. When we execute the particular file we cannot make any changes in that file. But we can save the file in our local hard drive.
How can I restrict the file for saving into the local hard disk? The files should be restricted to Read Only.
Awaiting your reply
