Hi,

we have a network using Win server 2003. and approx 15 standalone pc's. All running Win XP pro.
Each user has a folder on the server's shared drive. What l want to do is limit access to these folders. Some users have sensitive data and would not wish other users to see it.

l know l can right click on the folder goto Properties - Security and tick deny for all users, but that stops me from viewing the folder to.
What l need to know is how l deny all users except those who have permission?

Hope thats clear :thumbsup:

Many thanks
Geoff
