Shared Folder Security

Posted on 2012-08-28
Last Modified: 2014-02-03
I have a Windows server 2003 file server. I have multiple user accounts, two are individual accounts for two separate users. one account is a shared account called reception.
The two users both share reception duties, and log on as the reception user account.

I have a shared folder which is accessible by the the MD and the reception user.

The other problem is that one of the receptionists needs to put some sensitive data in the shared folder, so that user and the MD can see it, but they don't want the other receptionist to have access to it.

I have looked into password protecting folders, using third party tools etc, but was looking for a cleaner solution.

Both users still need to be able to log on as reception.

Any ideas on how this can be achieved?

    How about password protecting documents (Word or Excel)?
