Termiinal Services, RemoteApp - How do I restrict users from browsing to all folders on the server when saving

I am about to give remote users access to a program via RemoteApp. How do I stop them browsing or typing in the pathway to folders on the server.

Thanks

To prevent unauthorized users from accessing administrative folders under Microsoft Servers, use access control lists (ACLs) to prevent read access by unauthenticated users of the operating system as well as by clients connecting to Servers. When you use ACLs to restrict access, only properly authenticated users can view the contents of the Contribute administrative folder. Anonymous Server clients, or other users with access to the server, cannot view the administrative folder and its contents.
.....Hope this helps

You could enable Access based enumeration and if they don't have NTFS access to the folder or files, then they wouldn't see anything at all.
Another thing, if you're using RemoteApp, then they would only be able to use the funtionality of the application you are using. Of course, if that app shows them folders in a browser then my above comments would be valid.
Hope this helps.

Hello,

Thanks for the advise, I tried ACL's restricting user access to folders which works fine for your general domain user however I found it was to difficult to seperate what is and isn't require from the server C drive for terminal services. In the end found the best solution was to create a new group and set group policy.
