grant modify rights to subfolders under a read only root folder
This issue has been my focus for the better part of the day and would make my day/week if a remedy could be found.
The scenario is:
an entire department has a mapped shared drive to which they do all their work.
Due to various changes that have been made, the managers would like users to be unable to add/delete any folders in that root folder, but have modify rights on all subfolders and files contained within.
What I have done is created two groups: Moderators and Users.
The Moderators have modify rights from the root down...not a problem.
The problem comes when I attempt to restrict permissions to the root and open up permissions on all of the subfolders and files contained.
I have tried a number of different ways to accomplish this, but the results are either too much access or not enough.
