permissions for windows share


I am having a difficult time recreating the permissions on a share. The set up is typical:

- share root drive is drive D on win 2k8 r2 server
- inside are four folders
- three folders have no restrictions
- one folder is the user folder
- each user's folder should only be able to be opened by them and the domain admin

I used robocopy to copy these a while back and the permissions stayed on each individual folder but I must have set up the share wrong because all users can open another user's folder as well as anything in the folder.

Any help in setting the correct permissions is appreciated.

You have two options:

1. Give traverse folder/execute file permissions to the root of the share and all parent folders of the subfolder you wish to grant access to.
2. You could create a new share in the subfolder, grant the desired permissions and access it through that new share.
