Hi,
For some time now I have been confused over the NTFS/Share permissions on
server2003. I need to somehow understand how I would deny domain users access
to a directory holding company documents, then set permissions on folder
level. For example I have a structure as below but no-one should be able to
see the dir3 as it contains senstive information.

D:\ (Admin Share D$)
------CompanyFolder (Everyone Change & Read)
          --------------------dir1 (normal)
          --------------------dir2 (normal)
          --------------------dir3 (HR Change & Read, everyone else none)

This will only work when I individually deny users against dir3. What I
would prefer is to have all directories beneath Company Folder as blocked
unless I add permisions to allow making admin much easier.. Is this possible?

Any help appreciated

G
