folder share

This is for Windows 2003 Standard server.  I have created a folder called backup and have granted "everyone" access to it as a share.  Inside the backup folder are the names of the users. (example, fred, Jean, Marc)  I want to set the security so that only the user and the administrator (the server computer) can access this folder.  How would I do that?  I want to get to the point where when a user maps the share drive called backup they will get an access denied message if they are not going into there folder they have rights to.

well you would set the share permissions to everyone, but for each folder you would make a change on the security tab for that particular user, so if people try and click on it they get access is denied if its not their folder.  the map would be \\servername\sharename$\username  for each person.  if they map to sharename, they can see all the folders but will only be able to open theirs

You would also need to remove any inherited permissions from the subfolders (user1, user2, ect.) that might allow them to see each others' folders. I'd recommend using AccessEnum to check the settings when you're done.
