Create a group policy for file fileshare

I'm creating a departmental share. This will be one single folder in the file share and within that folder there will be one folder per department.  All users should be having access to the main folder and only to their assigned department subfolder. Active Directory already have the OU for users and below that each user department. All of this is in a W2K8  DC. The file share is a virtual box running  W2K12 R2. I have created the folder and subfolders with departments. What should be best way to create and apply GPO for permissions, mapped drives, disk quota,etc?

Hello

In Group Policy you have to follow this Microsoft article for enabling a network share item
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732793.aspx

To Configure a Mapped Drive Item

You will have to set the File Server Resource Manager, a server role that will allow you to set quotas at the volume or folder level

Thanks for these articles. But I'm still in doubt, under the AD domain tree I have all objects, printers, users, computers,etc. Under users I have subfolders for each department (sames as I have on the network share). I'm planning to do this, please advise if I'm wrong:

1. Create a new OU with the name of the shared folder.
2. Add the user and computers to it (How?)
3. Assign a GPO to that OU

What about the security groups for that OU?

in the permissions for each folder just give the ntfs permissions to the departments group name  each department does have their own OU right?

Correct. I'll be using same letter to mapped to each department folder. Is there any way to use one single policy but pointing to different folders ?
