Good day experts,

My client has a windows server 2008 file server with a DFS share and many users.

My project is doing a data cleanup and as part of this I'm going to revoke all modify/write permissions for all users on the entire file server.

We have many communication channels but I was hoping to place a watermark image (message) on the folder background so that when a user opens any folder on the file server they can see the background image.

I'm not sure if this is possible and how to achieve this.  

Please help.

There is also a "how to" change it by registry. This would give the chance to change it by script or a GPO maybe.
