I have a File server with a share and I'd like to understand the best approach to set Share and NTFS permissions.

Share Test Folder
- SubFolder1
- SubFolder2
- SubFolder3
- SubFolder4
        - Folder4 (Inside SubFolder4)

Let's say I have a group called 'test' with user1 and user2. This group has Read & Execute for Share test folder, however I want User 1 to have modify permissions to just SubFolder2 but nothing else. Now let's say I want User2 to have only FULL control to a folder within SubFolder4 called Folder4, however access to nothing else. How would I set permissions to satisfy this request? What if I have a user part of the TEST group but also has FULL control of root Share test folder, what access would this user have?

Thanks so much and I hope this makes sense.
