NTFS Permissions on Server 2008 R2, allowing access to subfolder only
Posted on 2014-02-07
I have inherited a really messy file server and am having problems getting the right access to user to a subfolder.
Have a Departments Share. Inside that share there are a large number of sub folders that don't have any individual share, just NTFS permissions.
Have an Accounting folder inside the departments share, and a folder "needs access" inside that. So I have a user I want to be able to mount the share Departments (works), then click Accounting Folder and only be able to see the list of folders underneath and then click "Needs Access folder" to which they have full access.
Thought that setting special permission Traverse Folder/Execute on folder Accounting for this user, then setting NTFS permissions on the Needs Access folder would allow this to work but when I try this the user is unable to open the Accounting Folder.
I have setup a share directly to the "Needs Access" folder to get around this but would like to get this setup correctly.
