I would like some advice on the following:

File Structure:                                           Current Permissions                   Would like to amend to

Shared area on 'Tom'                                Read
        Folder A                                           Read
        Folder B                                           Read
        Folder C                                           Read
                    Test.xls                                Read                                         Read and Write
        Folder D                                           Read

Is it possible to set up a 'group' which has read and write permissions on Folder C without having read and write permissions on Shared area on 'Tom'?

Many thanks

    Hi LiquidBOX,

    yes, you need to drill down the NTFS permissions and make sure that the settings arent being inherited from above!
