We have a network share on our LAN. It contains some directories. I wish one of the directories to only appear for about five employees in the company who coincidentally are in the Administrators group.. What is the easiest way to pull that off without access the Active Directory or RDP onto the machine itself? I can have the Sys Admin guy do that but I was wondering if a user like me could do it.
From my computer I just right-clicked the directory's Properties to view the Security tab. If I drill in a bit I get the attached screen shot.
It's my understanding if I click "deny" for the Everyone group that will block EVERYONE but me, so that is not the correct way. Evidently, deny overrides other access.
So, methinks I would just un-check the "Allow" checkboxes for the Everyone... that would alllow the Administrators to have access as desired.
BUT, I can't uncheck the Everyone "Allow" access because they are GREY... locked somehow.
How do I get around this?
What is the most straightforward way to only allow Admins to this "test" directory?
