Folder Redirection - root folder permissions
Posted on 2008-10-28
I have one question I'd like to discuss with the experts.
I'm implementing the folder redirection using group policies for one of my customers. Something what I've done many times before.
But what never came to my mind - the customer complains, that if I set the root folder permissions as they are required (Users - List Folders/ Read Data, Create folders / Append Data - for this folder only), the users will be able to create a new subfolders in the root folder manually - which the customer wants to prevent.
Can anybody help me with justification of this fact? I mean - does it really matter when users are allowed to create some unwanted folders? Or is there a kind of workaround, that would work the way that there will be created only folders required by group policy and user will not be able to create some additional ones? (on the same level, eg. there are folders like jsmith, abrown, jdoe...and on the same level could appear a new folders created manually by users).
Any advice would be appreciated.
