Morning,

This is a simple one but cannot rack my head how to do it.

Server 2008
Shared Folder Called - Data
Group permissions - Domain Users

So I want to share a folder called Data with Domain Users. I have set this up and tried to but the Share as Read Only as I don't want them creating folders or files in the root of Data.

I have then got Sub folders that I wan the users to have full permission on.

What am I doing wrong ..

Thanks

The folder share needs to be configured as follows.

Data folder Permissions (Root):
System, Full
Administrators, Full
Domain Users, Read Only

Disable inheritance on all the sub folders.

SubFolder Permissions:
System, Full
Administrators, Full
Domain Users, Full (Replace this group with other groups example. Accounting Group, HR Group)

Nest the users in those groups.

Hi,

Is this in the share settings or the security setting?

Under share settings you need to have the "Everyone" group added with full permissions.

The config above must be configured under Security Settings.

It was the inheritance Permission that was doing it.
