Angry Windows File Permissions

Hello Everyone,
I'm trying to delegate permissions to different users in a windows share environment, I want to make it so user1 can access a personal directory.

\\share1\folder1\user1\

without listing the contents of any previous folders.

IE: folder1 may also contain a folder user2, and I don't want user1 to be able to see the user2 folder while browsing \\share1\folder1\

What I'm looking for is a way to give the user only traversal rights to the folder.

I've already skimmed Microsoft Corporation
with little luck

Thanks
T1

Default Re: Windows File Permissions

So if you want user1 to only see eser1 folder, why not set the path yo \\share1\folder1\user1 on user1 pc.

And, \\share1\folder1\user2 on user2 pc.

or am I missing something?

You could also set the path for each user in a netlogon script to atuomatically define path of each users drive rights.

Default Re: Windows File Permissions

Using XP? You can specify explicit user permissions with the advanced file sharing.

Tools->Folder Options->View->Uncheck "Use simple file sharing (Recommended)" at the bottom.

Now, your folder's properties window will have a advanced "Sharing" / "Security" tab where you can set the permissions.

I'm not entirely sure this will work for that, but it's worth a shot.

Currently I have the user's Home Directory set to map F: to \\share1\folder1\user1 I'll try setting up a mapping in the logon script.

This is Windows Server 2003, Vormund
