Permissions to a subfolder

Hi all,
Is it possible in Windows Server 2003 to grant a user access to one subfolder only? For example, I have a folder called Accounting Documents, with several subfolders. I want User1 to have access to the Archive subfolder ONLY. Is it possible? Thanks

Yes, you would need to give that user "List Folder Objects" access to the root folder(s) and then grant them permissions to the folder you want to give them access to.

The user would need to be able to access the top level folder (browse only) so he can traverse to the sub directory you need access to and give him permission on that folder.

You need to utilize special permissions on the top level folder traverse I think its called to allow browsing

You can also share that sub folder and map it to that group/user to avoid the above.

Yes use the NTFS (security permissions) on the subfolder. You will need to go into advanced and disable inheiretance for that subfolder. Then you can give the user/group access.
