ntfs & share permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a network share called Accounting which resides on a Windows 2008 server (NTFS)

    There is a folder called TOP_ SECRET  under accounting share

    TOP_SECRET has a subfolder for each employee of the company.

    Share perms are set at the Accounting for everyone to have full control, however NTFS perms allow modify at the share.

    NTFS perm on TOP_SECRET allow spy_user users to write, but no read. As a result spy_user can drop files in to everyone’s subfolder, but can’t see the content of any of the subfolders under TOP_SECRET

    Is there a way (maybe with a combination of share & ntfs perms) to allow spy_user to see the content of the subfolders under TOP_SECRET but prevent reads of the files at the same time.

  • Have you tried using the "List folder content permission"? it Permits viewing and listing of files and subfolders as well as executing of files; inherited by folders only

  • It seems that you could also give Read permission on TOP_SECRET folder and apply to Subfolders Only.

    Actually if needed you could set Deny permissions which seems more easier for understanding. Such as Deny Read permission on Files Only.
