I have inherited a network which has several issue but I need to setup a user that only has rights to one shared drive but no all shared drives. How can I do this as his network icon shows all shared folders

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

There are a couple of different things you can do. You could create a logon script to automatically map his shared folder to a drive. Turn off netbios on his computer, he won’t be able to browse named shares; remove my network places from the desktop using group policy; Also consider that just because he can see the shares, proper security settings will prevent him from actually accessing a share.

    What rights does he have on at your domain level? What server OS are you running? If you are using MS Server 2003 check out this http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=04a563d9-78d9-4342-a485-b030ac442084&displaylang=en On you network shares, I recommend using NTFS to restrict access. Properly done, the individual may see the share but will not have access. Let us know how you do dmw
