Easy file permission query :)

Hi

I had a basic permissions query I was hoping someone could help me with!

Let's say I have a Windows 2003 server named  ServerA. It has the following folder structure

Finance > UK > London > pay.doc

I want to give someone access to pay.doc and other files in the London folder, but not any other documents in the other folders (e.g Finance > UK > Manchester > pay.doc).

Do I just go to the London folder and give him the relevant permissions. But his username will not be mentioned if I view the Security tab on any of the higher level folders to London? Or does he need permissions at each step of the way?

You could just modify permissions of the pay.doc file and give the person a link to the file. If you wanted them to browse the folders to the individual file, you would have to modify permissions on each and every one. It it probably best to just change permissions on the one file and give them a direct link to the file.

If I understand this right you want the user to only have access to files in the London folder and no other folders. In this case share this folder so the user can find it easily and give him permissions for this folder. Make sure that you disable inheritence, you don't want the London folders to inherit the perms from the above folders, if it does the user will not have access.
