Currently working with a network that has a few workstations and a PC that is "acting" as a Server using a Windows Share. The shared folder is accessible to all of the users on the network. I would like to restrict access to two sub-folders on the shared folder. They are the Accounting and Employee (HR) folders. Ordinarily I would go to the properties of the sub-folders and deny access to anyone other than a specific user group. The problem that I'm facing is that the sub-folders are listed as "Not Shared." On the Security tab, I could deny permissions to all but administrators, but the "most-restrictive" features of the permissions will take over and even Administrators won't be able to access the folder since the Admin is a member of both groups.
Now, this is only a temporary situation since the company is moving to a new office building this summer and will have a traditional server; however, I need to protect those folders now.
What's the best way for me to do this?
Thanks in advance!
