OS=Windows Server 2003 We have a drive on our network that is set up for users each user has their own folder. Some users want their stuff more secure than others. So how can I set it up to where user A cannot access user B,C,D,E,F or G? User A has full rights to only user A's folder. Each security tab is different, I need to reset them to the scenario mentioned before. Any help appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You need to set the security for each folder individually or set list and add permissions on the folder that stores all user folders and create a folder redirection group policy or roaming profiles.

    When I go to change/remove "Users" from the security tab and just "Add" user "A" and "Administrator" it states "you cannot change this cause it was inherited" or somethin...

    In the security tab, click on the Advanced button. Uncheck allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects. Click OK. Then make your changes.

    Awesome, that's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for making that clear. Our office has decided to cut back out contracted I.T. guy. So I have to step up to the plate and maintain our network. I have a dual role... Drafting and babysitting our Network. Thanks for the help.

    I need to assign rights to users in A.D. The way it is now, it would appear logically that all users have all rights to everything. This is not the case. With Everyone having Full control to the Users and all sub directories, nothingcan get copied, and no one can access their directories. It's as if things are 100% turned on their heads. Please help.
