I have a network with few shared folders that are created automatically upon login (login script).
the server is windows2003 and the clients are windows 2000 and windows xp.

I need a way that the shared folder S: can not be browsed via my computer...
I know that at one time I used a .adm file I downloaded from the internet that prevents certain letters to be browsed via the browser...

The idea is that there is an application in this shared folder...so the users must have full access to the folder.R/W)... but at the same time I am afraid that they might delete files if the browse the folder..
PS. the application is VFP

please help.
