NTFS Permissions Question
Posted on 2013-01-08
I have a client that wants to have a shared folder on a Windows 2003 server with special permissions. He wants all users to be able to see the contents of this folder, and to be able to create and save documents to this folder. However, he only wants the document creator to be able to make changes to said document, and all other users to have read only access. Basically, he wants it so that only the creator of the document can make changes to that document, and everyone else can only modify documents they have created themselves.
Is this something that can be done? I have played around with the permissions and have had no luck. It seems that the only way to do this would be to modify permissions on each document and define a document owner every time a new document is created. This would be a huge hassle. If anyone has any suggestions or an answer to this question it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
