File Permissions 15 years 3 months ago #2128

The easiest way to set permissions is to do it via groups. It will depend if you in an Active Directory environment or just within a workgroup.

If in an AD evironment, you will be able to add the group you want to control and change the permissions. Otherwise, create the group locally, add the users you want the restrictions on to this group and edit the permissions as you want them.

To prevent users deleting the files go to security tab > advanced > permissons tab. From here you can select the group and then the permissions you want. From here you will be able to stop users deleting files.

Hope this helps you out. If you need more help, let me know.

To help you resolve your problem as quick as possible, can you provide us with the following information:

1) Windows Operating system

2) Is the server part of the domain/Active Directory ?

3) The path of the folder you wish to restrict access to and the permissions required

4) Are the users you wish you restrict, part of any group you have created for this purpose ?

Once we have this info, someone will reply asap with your solution!

Cheers and have a Merry Christmas !
