Limit subfolder creation on staff shared drive
Hi Everyone, here's a strange issue.
During the upcoming summer holidays, one of my jobs is to totally "re-do" our staff shared drive. The reason for this is because it’s in a total mess due to the fact that staff have the ability to create folder in it.
It used to be in a very organised state with a folder for each subject/faculty area...but now we have loads of random ones.
My plan is to have the a long list of 1st level sub folders for each subject area...and I want to prevent staff from being able to create folders at this same level. However, I’d like to grant staff the ability to create folders and files at levels below this.
By using NFTS (probably the "Special Permissions" bit), is this possible? and has anyone else got their system configured in this way?

Hi Aaron, this is fairly simple usng NTFS ACL's. Create the structure as -
D:\Shared Drives\Staff - Apply the ACL as in the Perms1 JPEG - ensuring that you apply it onto "this folder only"
D:\Shared Drives\Staff\%Department% - Apply the ACL to the seperate Department folders as in the Perms2 JPEG - ensuring that you apply it onto "subfolders and files only"
This way they will be able to read the root folders where the departments are split, anything below their department they will have control to make folders and files etc.
To take it one step further you could split your staff into departments so that English can only write and read to their own folder and nobody elses, but that more of a mangement desicion really!
Something like this should do :-)

Fingers crossed for you mate, hope it works out well. Any more trouble get back on here, but ACL's are fairly straight forward if you sit back and think about them for a fe minutes :-)
