Network share security

I am setting up a new Windows 2003 File Server and want to set a base structure that users can not make changes to the department folders but have run into a problem at the first level folder.

I have a shared folder of \\fileserver\data   the share permission is full, the folder security is read, list, transend

Under that share I have some other folders (users, engineering, common, etc.)

With the current permissions the users can not view the contents of \\fileserver\data  they can jump over \data and get to a specific folder, example  \\fileserver\data\users and see the folders within users.

What have I misconfigured?

Hi avsc,

reset the data folder permission back to default - does it work now

make your changes one at a time to see what is causing grief
