    Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    I would like to make a student drop box ( a homework folder) where the students can save documents only. I don't want students to see the other students documents in the folder, just be able to save their documents to the drop box folder. Then teachers would have permission to read and change the student documents. What permissions would the folder need for the students to save only. I have tried several combinations of permissions, but have not found a way to do this.

    This would be on a Windows Server 2003 Standard Server.

    Re: Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    Incorrect share permissions? To clarify: The share permissions should be set to Everyone:Full Control. The NTFS permissions should be changed to give students 'Write'. Depending on the application used to save the file, they may need a few other permissions such as 'List Folder/Read Data' or 'Read Permissions'.

    When I select 'List Folder/Read Data' or 'Read Permissions' the students can then get into the folder and open and make changes to the documents. Teachers want students to just 'drop' in their assignment and not be able to access or see their work or other students work.

    Re: Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    I've just been playing with this...

    For the purposes of this example, we'll assume that the student group is called 'Students'.

    Students - Traverse Folder/Execute File (This Folder Only)
    Students - Read Attributes, Read Extended Attributes, Create Files/Write Data, Read Permissions (This Folder, Subfolders and Files)
    CREATOR OWNER - Traverse Folder/Execute File, List Folder/Read Data, Read Attributes, Read Extended Attributes, Read Permissions (Subfolders and Files Only)

    I have access based enumeration enabled on the share so any folders not accessible by the student in question do not appear in Windows Explorer.

    Students will be able to see their own work but not make changes to it or delete it.

    Re: Student drop box (homework folder) permissions

    This is what I did:

    Made folder called "Public" and it is shared as "Public" and users have "Change and Read" permissions on the share.

    Inside the "Public" folder is a folder called "Test Dropbox". It is shared as "Test Dropbox and "Everyone" has "Change and Read"

    Under the Security Tab, "students" have Create Files/Write Data, Create Folders/Append Data, Write Attributes, Write Extended Attributes and Read permissions.

    "Apply these permissions to objects and or containers within this container only is not checked.

    In Advanced Security setting box....Allow inheritable permission from the parent to this object and all child objects is not checked.

    Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child object is not checked.

    I've always given 'everyone' full control, then locked it down by group.

    dunno if it would make a difference

    This thread and this one: http://www.edugeek.net/index.php?nam...ewtopic&t=9957 seem to be the same. Should a moderator lock one of these and direct all new posts to the other?

    No hard rule just common sense - if you start two identical threads how are people supposed to follow the topic or know which thread is the active one/ has the solution?

    I suggest you point ppl to one thread from the other and carry on from there
