We don't want folders on server to be accessed by everyone
Posted on 2016-09-06
Goal: I want to only give access to the individual themselves, the administrator and on some of them one or two other people.
We have a server that is running Windows Server 2012. The files that people save into their individual folders on the were originally set up so that everyone can access them. When I right click on he parent folder and the individual folders inside and go to Properties and Security there is "Administrators", Administrator", "System", and "Users".
On the individual folders, I can add the individual but the "users" group is still present and can access the folder. I tried to remove Users but it says if a person has rights in two groups and you remove one group, then that is the over riding rule (No access). How do I begin to change this so I can accomplish the goal above?
