Here's what I'm trying to set up:
A share on my Windows 2003 Server's C: drive named "Evaluations". Under that will be folders for departments, "Dept1", "Dept2", etc. Within each department folder are Word documents specific to individual employees that are their performance evaluations for the year. Only the user and his/her supervisor should have the ability to open and change the Word docs. I keep running into permission problems with this one.
I assign limited rights to the Everyone group so that they can see the "Evaluations" share, but I can't seem to assign permissions to the individual files to limit their access to just the user and their supervisor. I don't care if, in the example below, Fred can see that there's another file named "Jane.docx", but I don't want him to be able to open it. I have created a drive map group policy so that all users have a drive mapped to \\servername\evaluations.
(Note - the screenshot is from a Windows 7 workstation, but I'm actually setting this up on a Windows 2003 Server). Any help will be greatly appreciated!
