Hello,

 

I need a little help with getting this right, after several failed attempts. 

 

So I got this folder structure on my server going on, and the parent folder has been shared and mapped as F:/ via Group Policy Manager for alle Users under the Users OU.

 

Folder A

Folder A > Sub folder A

Folder A > Sub folder B

Folder A > Sub folder C

 

In AD I have created the following groups

 

Sub_Folder_A

Sub_Folder_B

Sub_Folder_c

 

How I want this to work is that everyone has access to Folder A, but cannot see Sub folder A, B, or C without the respective AD group.

Furthermore I don't want anyone to be able to create, edit or delete anything in Folder A, only the sub folders they have access to.

 

Any one out there able to get me at the right path? Head hurts from hitting a wall to much!

Share Folder A with everyone, and give Domain Users (or the appropriate AD group) NTFS read and list contents access to Folder A. Give the AD sub_folder groups the appropriate NTFS permissions to the appropriate subfolders. That way, you don't have to block permission inheritance between Folder A and the subfolders. Users will be able to access the subfolders through folder A, but won't be able to make changes to it, while being able to add, delete, change anything in the subfolders they have access to.

This helped a lot, was totally stuck on that one thing I did, but this helped me think differently and got me to where I wanted! Thanks!
