Hi,

We are using Windows Server 2012R2 for a file server.
We have installed the essentials windows server Dashboard on this.

On the local drive, we have shared some folders like "Data, administration, operation, finance,.."
On the "operation" folder, we have a subfolder... for exemple "abroad_operation".

For one of our users, we need to give permission to access "abroad_operation" but not to "operation".
For this moment, we are setting on "Operation" read access and then on "abroad_acces" read/write access.

If I set no access on "operation" and give full control on "Abroad_access", the user has no access to the folder...

Needs some help.

Thanks a lot in advance.

you have to change your folder hierarchy from most restrictive -> least restrictive to least-restrictive -> most restrictive.

Thar or create a NEW Share that points to that exact location.

Instead of giving read permissions to the parent directories, I go to advanced permissions and give list permissions to the parent directory and apply to this folder only. I do this from the top of the share down to the immediate parent of the directory they need read and/or write access to. It prevents them from being able to open files in the parent directories.
