Here's the scenario. I've got a few companies sharing a SBS server. I need to restrict access to certain folders on a mapped drive to those users who should have access i.e. Company 1 users should only be able to see Company 1 folders, Company 2 users should only be able to see Company 2 folders, etc. The problem is that there is a user that needs access to both company 1 and 2 folders. I've done some searching around here and think the best way is to set up security groups called company 1, 2, etc. and add users to each group, set permissions to folders based on security groups. Add the user that needs access to both to both security groups.

Question 1
Is this the right way to go about this?
Question 2
I was able to set up a new security group and am trying to set permissions to individual folders, however when I try to make changes to the folder the "add" group or user name button is greyed out. How do I add the new security group to the individual folders?
