Folders permission

I have a server with a folder called Content with multiple folders inside named after the productIDs.

It has a structure like this:


           ... etc

Is it possible to assign read/write permissions to the HTML sub-folders only.

Is this a share accessed across the network?
Do you want the rest of the folders to be read only?

If so

Create your Security Group

Share Permissions: Group=Full Control
NTFS Permissions: Group=Read Only
Make sure you leave inheritable permissions on.

On each HTML folder
Remove the inheritable permission check box under advanced.  Let is copy the existing permission.
Change your group permission to Modify (or read/write)

You should be done.  The mix of Share and NTFS permissions will effectivly apply the most restrictive.  So Share (Full) and HTML (Modify) = Modify effective.

Hi all,

I was thinking about something (scripting or powershell kind of thing) which I could run as a batch otherwise I need to visit each sub folder "HTML" individually and that is precisely what I would like to avoid.
