Sharing in Windows 2008 Server
Posted on 2012-04-05
I have a root folder shared and then have a user group that has full access to that folder. I now have employees that just need access to 2 folders within that root shared folder. I am trying to figure out how to configure the share and permissions on the server so that this new group 'Shared Users Limited' can only SEE the 2 folders they are allowed to use and not see and open ALL of the other folders that exist. I was able to limit them to 'traverse' but that still allows them to see all of the folders and subfolders but if they try to open a file that get access denied.
Is it possible to configure for the the limited user group to only see the 2 folders and not all of the folders, without creating another share just for them?
BTW..this is not a domain, but a peer to peer, but it should not matter since the users have been created on the server.
