I have a group of PCs that I need to give Restricted Group access through GPO to the C: drive for some silly program that needs to write some temporary data.  Anyway... Is there a way to limit the C: drive access to just one folder on it or is it an all or nothing type of deal?

Thanks!

You don't want Restricted Groups, which defines the members of a specified group on a machine.

What you are looking for is Computer Configuration, Policies, Windows Settings, Security Settings, File System and then right click to add file, browse to the directory you need to make the changes to, and then set the security. I usually give Users the Modify settings for cases like this, but you can coose a specific Domain or Local group if that better suits your needs.
