    Shares and permissions

    I know this is a bit of a normal thing on here but wonderd if any one can help ?

    Our structure is as follows

    Share on Server
    Under the share is the following folders

    year11
    year10
    year9
    year8
    year7
    Staff


    The folders orignally had ownership on them . But i removed this but kept there usernames in security using SetACL.exe.
    Staff have permisions to read all folders.

    Is it possible to stop staff browsing other staff accounts via the UNC path with this setup... ?

    Erm, did you remove the folder permission on the individual user folders themselves? How did you create the user areas, and when you removed the permissions from the top level folders did you have the box ticked that removed the permissions from all of the files and folders within that share? If you did then you may have some work on your hands.

    I didnt touch top level , i done each folder seperartly e.g. year 11 , year 8 etc

    What i did was used setacl to take control of say the year11 folder ( all the users inside it ) it took control with the admin account added staff to the security the readded the owners name to the security group . So each folder has the correct user added to the security Group but me now as a admin can view it .

    I was just curious as to if i was to remove the staff group from all the staff folders ( but it still has the owners username in the security field ) will they still be able to acces there work ? just stop other people snooping in !
