We are Using Windows 2003 Server with Active Directory

The question is we have a folder below the Home folder (Home = Users)

So someone made a folder below the HOME(USERS) called PCP

Then 3 other folders were made.  Below is the example of what we are trying to accomplish.
As of now since the permissions for GroupShareUser are inherited it shows that Joe can Write to Sue and Marks folder.  We want Joe to only be able to Write to his folder but read the content in all other folders.
Can we deny the Write permission for the GroupShareUser and then the Folder Level User Write permissions for Joe will Take control?


PCP FOLDER

Joe FOlder

Sue FOlder

Mark FOlder

JOe should be able to Read/W/E in Joe FOlder  BUt can only Read Sue and Mark FOlder

Sure should be able to READ/W/E in Sue Folder But can only Read Joe and Mark Folder

Unless you're going to explicitly deny every user (don't deny Everyone from writing - that'll include Joe!), you are better off just not adding those rights...

In other words, remove inheritence from Joe
Then under Security/Advanced, edit the permissions (copy) and remove anyone besides Joe that doesn't need any access.
You can then come back in and Add Everyone:Read if needed...
