This should be a real easy one.  I have an Server 2008 AD domain.  I have a share named DATA with a folder under it named Test.  I want to grant rights to the Test folder for a group, but nothing above the Test folder.  Where and what rights do I need to grant?  I keep receiving Access Denied when trying to save a document logged in as a member of the group.  I am used to Novell where you simply grant the rights at the folder level and move on.  Thanks for your help.

You need to give the user access to the Folder by adding the Permissions to the Share folder permissions. Then you want to block Permissions from inheriting from Parent folder

You don't want them to save any information in the above folder your just Give them Read permission.

Hi astring,

Give all users and groups full permisions on sharing tab for "DATA" folder.
Configure NTFS permissions on security tab for every folder as you want.

That's it.

For the share itself, you should grant everybody with full access.
For the security:
you need to grant permissions with advanced rights for the group:
Apply to: Files only  !!!!  or This Folder and Files !!!!
Permissions: Full control

This should do the job as you grant only rights for files but not subfolders.
To be sure, you can also check the "replace all child objects permissions with inheritable permissions from this object.
This will erase the security for subfolders, but as the scope of your group is "files only" or "this folder and files", the security won't propagate to subfolders.
