NTFS Folder Permissions
Posted on 2014-02-24
Had a request from a user to have the global downloads folder turned into a secure zone.
Basically need it so everyone can save to it, open their own files, but cannot view anyone elses files.
I have the following permissions in place.
Creator Owner - Full Control
Domain users - Write + List folder contents
The users don't want each other to be able to see the list folder contents but if I remove this it comes up access denied for the entire folder.
The only workaround I have thought of is to create a folder per user within downloads and tie it down so each person has their own folder which only they can view and save into.
But this has been met with "Why do I have to do this, I don't currently choose where I save my downloads will I have to manually move them into my folder everytime, will every staff member have to have their own folder."
