I am trying to allow access for specific users to access certain folders when they log onto a computer.  I have created an OU and placed the user within that OU and have also created a new Group Policy for that OU and made changes such as not granting access to the control panel and certain other aspects of the computer.  I am running into a problem when loggin in as the user that I am not able to access my documents folder or any other folder.  I need them the ability to access the inetpub folder because they will be working with Visual Studio.  Visual Studio is their sole purpose for logging onto this machine.  I have blocked access to everything else but I do not know how to just provide write and read access to specific folders through Group Policy.
