Making a file accessible to a user with limited permissions for an SBS 2011 standard server
Posted on 2014-07-10
Situation is that there's 3 groups of users - A, B, C.
users in group A can access folder 1 & 2.
users in group B can access folder 2
users in group C cannot access folder 1 and 2
There's a file in folder 1 that all A users have a shortcut to \\server\folder1\doc on their desktops because they use it so much.
Now they want group B to be able to access that file.
How would you do this to make sure the desktop shortcuts all still work, group B can access the file and group C cannot.
some ways I can think of it:
give group B permission to just that file? But how much of folder 1 can they see then? File names?...
Move file to folder2 and change all the shortcuts?
