How to create Drop Boxes on Server 2003 500pt.

Hi all,
I have recently been tasked with creating drop boxes for several teachers in our district's high school and middle school.  Each teacher wants their own drop box, and the typical drop box settings i.e. the teacher has full control over all the files, but the students have full control over their individual files but cannot see or access the other students documents.  As far as folder structure, we have Server1 housing the drop boxes, with a share named DropBoxes, and within this share two folders, one named HighSchool and one named MiddleSchool.  Each teacher will have their own folder within their respective school.  So, for an example, a path to one of the drop boxes would be:  \\Server1\DropBoxes\HighSchool\Spataro  I don't see anything wrong with the folder structure, but I need to know what permissions I should assign at each level, in order to accomplish the aforementioned.  I have security groups for High SChool Students, High School Faculty, and same for Middle school....I realize the potential complexity to this problem, thus the 500 pt. assignment.

Thanks everyone!

Hi JK,

on the Teachers folders, use Full control for them.  Each students folder should use the CREATOR OWNER permission - full control which will allow them to use the information exclusively.  Do not allow any permissions to propogate (advanced settings).  If you want the teachers to be able to get to the students folders, put the permission on the top level folder for the teachers to be full control and let it propogate to all subfolders.

If you need more detail, let us know.

I have worked my way through this, thanks for the recommendation.  Here is how it goes:

Share Permissions for Shared Folder "DropBoxes$":  

Administrators:  Full Control
Domain Admins:  Full Control
Domain_Faculty:  Modify
HS_Students:  Modify
MS_Students:  Modify

NTFS Permissions for Shared Folder "DropBoxes$"

Administrators:  Full Control
Creator Owner:  Full Control
Domain Admins:  Full Control
Domain_Faculty:  Modify
HS_Students:  Modify
MS_Students: Modify
SYSTEM:  Full control

NTFS Permissions for "High School" Folder

Remove MS_Students Security group to prevent access to High School drop boxes
Change HS_Students Permissions to allow:  Read and Execute, List Folder Contents and Read

NTFS Permissions for "Spataro" folder

Same as above, except that the HS_Students are only allowed to List Folder Contents and Write

This configuration allows for a scripts to map to the dropboxes also, as that is what I have done.  Hope this helps someone else out...now that I've been battling w/ it for 2 days....haha

It should be noted that I am awarding points to ganongj (Jim) simply because he took the time to respond.  His solution did not necessarily work for what I needed, that is why I posted what utlimately did work.  Thanks for the time Jim.
