Trusted locations in Office 2010

Hi experts,

I have searched and read every Microsoft article out there on this and searched EE site and really am not expecting that this can be done but I am not an expert so I will ask  :)

Is there a way to allow a user to create a trusted location folder on the network share yet still lock it down down at the root level?  For example, a user could trust T:\This Folder\Trusted but couldn't trust T:\.   I have been trying to do this via group policy but there does not seem to be a setting that can get this specific.

Hope this makes sense!

btw....in a Windows XP SP3 environment if that makes any difference

Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this either way.  It is really appreciated!!

When you create a trust on a folder it is only for that folder and any sub folders... it does not trust the root or anything above it.

Thanks for responding BCIpollone, I appreciate it.  

Yes, I have read that a few times already thinking I have missed something  :)

Are you aware of there being any way though to lock it down so that a user CANNOT trust the root even if they tried?  That is actually what I am wanting to do but there doesn't seem to be a way that I can find.

I have contacted Microsoft directly and, just as I had thought, what I am wanting to do cannot be done (at least not the way I want to do it).  

I am awarding the points to BCipollone and would like to thank him again for taking the time to respond.  Much appareciated!!
