Autorisation on a sub-directory

Hi Guys!

I need some help on this one...  Nerver done this.

I need to give access to an employee to a sub-sub-sub directory on a share folder...

For exemple:

accounting - management - report.

The user must be able to double click on accounting, management, and report.  I don't want this employe to have access to any other stuff on the accounting folder or management folder...

Any ideas?

Windows uses NTFS permissions to control who has access to while files/folders and what type of access they have.

NTFS permissions can be set from the security tab of a folder/file's properties

You would give the user read access to the accounting folder and all subfolders and files. This will allow the user to navigate thru the folders, but not open or change anything.

Then on the report folder you would go to the security tab and click on the advanced button.

Uncheck "inherit from parent the permission entries..." Choose to copy the current permissions.

Cliked the user's name and click edit.

Then give the user the appropriate rights to his folder.  
Opps...change one thing I just posted.

Instead of giving them full read rights, give them only traverse folder rights and choose the option to "apply only to" the folder and subfolder...not to files. You will do this from the advanced tab. This should work....
