I have windows 2008 r2 x64
Domain environment
I have an S drive that is a shared folder for most peoples files.
On the S drive I have a folder called David that belongs to my CFO
In that folder there is a file called cashrec.xlsx that he wants to share with the receptionist
He wants to make sure the receptionist can not open any of the other files located in this folder.

I can not seem to get this accomplished.

Can you help??

Right click on the file in question, select properties, then the security tab and add the user rights to the file.

The only issue is that they will have to at least have read rights on the folder that has the file in it.

It's not great practice to have different file permissions within a folder, not least because there's always a risk that the lower permissions may be propagated through the folder tree. From a security perspective it would be better to have a top level folder which can be seen by both TFO and Receptionist which is separate from \David.

In addition to the creating a folder specifically for this suggestion; in assigning the security rights to the group it's also best to create a security group for who is able to access that folder.

This makes adding/removing people much easier and if someone asks who has access it can be answered with a quick glance.
