I use a single folder for My Documents for everyone in our domain. Everyone is redirected to this folder. I want to give my inside users full access to My Documents and access to selected folders to my outside contractors via RWW. I created a security group called "Outside Contractors". All the outside contractors are a member of this group and Remote Web Workstation Users group. The inside users are members of the Domain Users or Domain Power Users Group. I set up the My Documents as a share for Authenticated Users having full control. I have set up permissions as follows:
Domain Users Group
Domain Power Users Group
My Documents: Full Control
My Documents: List Folder, Read Data, this folder only
Selected Folders: Read and Execute, List Folder, Read
With this setup, my outside contractors only have access to the selected folders. But my inside people have no access to My Documents at all!!!???? The inside people get access when I give "Authenticated Users" full access to My Documents but then the outside contractors have full access to all the folders. How should I set this up?
With the setup above, the outside contractors see all the folders in My Documents but only have access to the selected folders. Is there a way to set it up where they only see the selected folders? I would prefer my inside people have only one place to look for documents.
I am getting to really hate SBS!!!
