Hi,

I need to create A and B two folders and give users full rights to either A or B. I would like users belong to A only have Read Only  rights to B and vice versa. How do I do that? The server is Windows 2003 standard.

Thank you very much in advance!

Create groups for the two folders...

Group A and Group B...

Assign the appropriate rights to each folder for each group.

Add a deny write on Folder A for Group B
and
Add a deny write on Folder B for Group A

That way, if you accidentally add a user to both groups, they can't write until the issue is resolved.

If the two folders are separate folders and not under one another, you can do this:

Create a group for folder A RO
Create a group for folder A RW
create a group for folder B RO
Create a group for folder B RW

On folder a, assign the group RO read only rights and assign the group RW read,write, modify rights.  Do the same steps for folder B.

Now add your RW users to the A and B group and add your RW users to the A and B group.

So if a user is in the group called folder A RO, they only get read only rights to folder A, etc..

The link below is for Windows XP but it should also work for  Windows 2003

Follow the link below if you are looking specifically for Windows server OS
