Permissions on Server 2008

Hi There

I have the following scenario:-

User 1
User 2
User 3
User 4

Folder A - all users have full control on this folder currently
Folder B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P, - these are subfolders of folder A  and all users currently have full control access.

I need to put the following Security in Place:-
User 1 must have access to Folder A and all subfolders and Files
User 2 must be able to Access folder A but must not have access to subfolders E,F,G
User 3 must only have access to subfolders D,E,F
User 4 must only have access to subfolder D

What would be the easiest way to set this up?

Thanks

First thing is Users have full control they can change permissions on the folders so if you deny them access they can go in and uncheck deny. So, the way you want to do things will not work.

Not giving them Full Control over the Main Folder would be the best solution you can then go into the Special Permissions to deny and approve permissions from there but that is still getting messy. Sometimes you have to break your folder structure in a couple of trees. Or you can use directly network drive setups
