I have been using an XP computer as file server for a gourp of 4 people. Up until now they have all had access to the folders shares on the server which made life simple. However some new employees willl be starting up soon and they will only have restricted access to some folders over the network (and not capability to log in to server locally) so it appears that I am going to have to create some new users and perhaps groups.
Is it best to create a couple new groups and then assign NTFS permissions based on these groups or is there a simpler/ more manageable way this should be approached. I understand NTFS permissions/ folder sharing and inheritence issues etc but not sure how XP manages groups for this purpose.
