    User Network Folders

    Hi all, we're after a way to allow students to submit their ICT work efficiently. Currently we have a handin folder structure that allows students to drag their work into the handin folder in the correct department.

    We would like to have individual folders for each student that only that student can drop their work into. This is 100+ users that we'd like to do this for.

    Does anyone have any idea of the best way to do this? A script... piece of software etc?


    Thanks,
    Ollie.

    Sorry to bump, found this Batch Create Folders in a Directory/Share from a CSV Text File : Microsoft, Windows Server, 2003

    Does anyone know how I can expand on this so I can specify the owner/permissions for each of these folders?

    You could use this:
    SetACL - Windows permission management
    with the assosiated batch or VBS commands to do this.

    If you set permissions correctly on a shared folder you could allow students to create their own folders, only they (and admins/staff) would have read/write access.

    We do this for local scratch areas on media studies machines.

    If someone creates a stupidly named folder you can trace who it was by its owner property.

    We have students with their own home folders (obviously) but we also give them a 'submissions' drive. They can do pretty much what they like within this but teachers can only read. The teacher's drive is mapped one level up so they will see a folder structure like 04, 05, 06 etc (year of intake) and can then drill down to the student they want to mark work for, send for moderating etc.

    Permissions are set by xcalc

    I have achieved what you want to do for a locked down account for the art exam that we had here. I ran a logon script that I wrote which firstly mapped the drive. Then, the script looked for the particular user in that drive. If the user has a folder in there, then it skips to the end as they already have a folder in there! If not, it creates them a folder then sets the relevant permissions.

    I can dig this out for you if you want?
