Apparently you can't upload files in Remote Web Access without being an administrator.  The problem is when I make the user an administrator they can access folders they shouldn't be able to.  Even if I put an explicit deny they can access the folders.  Is there any way I can allow users to upload files  without allowing them access to all folders?

Why not simply enable IIS for FTP Services? You may allow common users or even anonymous users to upload files there and get rid of the limit by Windows system.

Apparently something went wrong at configuring it. I have to say, I am not into that topic, but surely, no admin rights are needed if you set the share ACLs correctly.

Permissions work correctly internally so I think the ACL's are correct.  Only a problem when using RWW.  It is almost like RWW uses a system account or something.

FTP would work but it seems like there should be a way to avoid this clumsy workaround.

Sorry, no clue - I am just sure it should work. You should read the documentation.

I figured it out.  I need R/W access from the dashboard for the root folder.

"from the Dashboard" means what? I guess you configure the share permissions that way, just as I thought. Standard Sshares only offer read access.

I usually do permissions from Windows Explorer.  The dashboard actually changes NTFS permissions but on the root folder only.  But it assigns individual users instead of groups which is considered a bad practice in a traditional Windows Server environment.
