Setting File & Folder Permissions on WIndows Server 2012 R2

Hi,

I have a server running Windows Server 2012 R2.

There is a shared folder on the D: drive called office, shared as office.

Inside this folder is a number of top level folders (and no files!)

Inside each of these top level folders is a tree of subfolders and files.

I want to set the permissions as follows:

Only administrators can rename, delete or create top level folders.

Everyone can read, create and delete folders and files within the top level folders.

So far I have not managed to lock the top level folders without locking the content.

Thanks,

Richard

What you need to do is set the permissions on D:\ for Administrator (Full Control).

Then you need to go inside each top level folder, properties, security tab, advance button, change permissions button.

Then remove the "Include Inheritable permissions from this objects parent" check box

Click the Add button (this will keep the current permissions intact

From there you can modify the Users permissions (non-admins) to whatever you like. From there these permissions will be propagated to all sub-directories.
