Folder permissions

I have a folder with subfolders. I do not want anyone to be able to put files within the main folder but they could put files in any of the subfolders. How would I do this in the security settings? (MS Windows SBS2003)

Hi!

Remove write permission for parent folder, leav only read premission. Select subfolder, remove permission inheritance and configure write permissions. How manjy folders are we talking about?

Well, to many to do this manually. Will all 200 folder have the same permissions? Did you consider using utilities like cacls.exe or xcalcs.exe?

These two command line utilities are used for setting NTFS ACLs. First is part of operating system, second is part of Server Resource Kit. They both have some limitations. Xcacls.vbs script has fewer limitations, check this KB article on how to install it and use it: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=825751
