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

yes create groups read,readwrite and modify, and add the user on the group accoring to they required the permission,

then goto folder proerties  -security tab-->

remove the all user or every one from the folder then add the groups and assing the permission according the group

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.
