Server 2008 file sharing
Posted on 2011-03-09
I've been asked to set up a VPS running Server 2008. I've got a chain of 12 restaurants - each one needs to have their own view of a drive, but not to be able to see the others. In addition, there's an admin logon that has a view of all the folders.
My question is - since I'm hosting this all on one server, is there a way of making directories invisible to certain users? I wanted to set up a series of directories on, e.g. D:\Data\Restaurant1 then give Restaurant1 a unique logon, so that all it can see under D:\Data is its own directory.
Is this possible? Remember, it's all on one server here, so we're talking more about NTFS permissions rather than file sharing. I know you can block access in Server 2003, but I wanted the folder to be actually invisible in Explorer.
