Giving users access to list specific folders on a shared drive

Hi,

We have a network drive that is access by all users. However some users only need to see specific folders. Is there a way of giving them access to this drive but only being able to view certain folders.

Can this be done via active directory or will it be a manual thing.

Server Operating System: SBS2008

PC Operating Systems: W7 Pro x64

Regards

Will

you can use DFS feature on the server and ABE (Access Based Enumeration)

how to do that you can find for example here:

I'm assuming you have already assigned appropriate permissions, but just don't want users to see folders they can't access?

This is done via Access-Based Enumeration, and is quite easy to implement.

See:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd772681(v=ws.10).aspx

If you haven't already assigned the appropriate permissions, I suggest that you manage shared folders via the SBS Console "shared folders and websites tab".  However you will still want to have Access-Based Enumeration enabled if you want to  hide folders they don't have access to.
