    How do you restrict access to network folders

    Is there a way of restricting access to network folders other than using the logon hours feature in AD?

    I'm trying to set up controlled assessment folders which can only be accessed at certain times and I'm not sure how to do it!!!

    Thanks

    A Task Manager scheduled script to change permissions on the folder using cacls, so it locks it up after the exam, then reopens it again for the next one, would work and be simple.

    Perhaps create some new exam users which have access to the shared drive, but don't allow access for any other users (simple NTFS permissions). Then once the exam is finished simply disable the exam accounts.

    If you aren't using AD then I'm not sure how much use the CACLS approach would be. You could script the creation/deletion of the share though. This script would have to run on the server where the share is hosted.

    Net Share Syntax: Net share
