External storage with NTFS permissions
Posted on 2013-01-15
I have a need for a "Low cost" external storage device that allows me to setup NTFS folder/file permissions on it.
I have been using one of the Buffalo drives for the porpose and it works fine. It is AD aware and can set permissions at the root folder level with no problems.
The challange comes when I need to take one of those folders and create different permissions on one of the sub folders at the same time -like standard NTFS.
I need this capability, without putting out the cost of a new server to get it.
The device would be connected to either a network, or to a Windows 03 server... whatever was needed.
What are my options?
