I have a department folder with several sub folders that have permissions assigned to them depending on what department they are in.

I have several tin clients that I have mapped the root department folder for, but I want it to prompt them for their user name and password to access the folders in the root folder.

DEPARTMENT FOLDER (main folder mapped)
    IT (subfolder in Department folder)
    Sales (subfolder in Department folder)

I want Sales or any one else to have to give their credentials to access the lower folders
This way I can use a generic account to log into the RDP session on the server and anyone then can access their department folder once they have authenticated

Any ideas?
