Setting security peermissions on sub-folders.
Posted on 2011-09-26
On our SBS2003 we have a network share that many users have access to. We have just done a lot of housekeeping and tidied up the folder so it contains only 8 top-level folders. Each of these folders has lots of other sub-folders.
I want to limit the ability for users to add, delete or modify the top-level folders. I want the eight top-level folders to be unchangeable by most users, so they are forced to save their work in a lower-level folder. I will give one or two senior managers the rights to change the top-level folders. The rights will be identical between each of the lower-level folders.
Is there a way to set up these permissions simply?
Here is a description of what we have:
The 'Projects' Folder is the network folder
On the next level we have eight folders:
Project1, Project2, Project3,...Project8
I only want two users to be able to modify things at this level
Inside any of the ProjectX folders (Project1, Project2, Project3,...Project8) any user can save a file, create a sub-folder, etc.
What is the best/simplest way to set up these security permissions?
