"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

right click on the folder -> properties -> sharing -> add people with read permission -> apply -> go to security -> add these people permission as read. apply and they will be able to read the directory items

Sorry for the confussion, I am running a file server. Each drive has multiple folder. I want to give the certain people to gain access for those folder. When I right click then go the properties> then I can see General, Security, Previous versions, customize. I don't see sharing option. Any sugessions? Would be great help. Thanks.
