Hello,

I have a share on a windows server 2003 machine which is mapped as F on all company computers.  There is various folders within this which all have varied security on them.  At the moment anyone can save a file to the root of the F drive which i want to stop happening.  What is the best way of going about this?  I need to be careful as I don't want to change a setting and lose the security settings on other folders

Many Thanks

If you do not want anyone to write to the Root of F:\ you should then set permissions on the other subfolder folders  individually..
 also note that you should NOT "inherit" any permissions from F:\( parent folder) as this will revoke all write access to the subfolders.

Hello,

What permissions should i set on the other folders?  Do I need to set "everyone" a specific permission?

Thanks

Thanks for that but I am still unsure about doing this and messing up all the other security settings
