I am in need of help please as I am not familiar with the folder permissions stuff.
Everyone has access to a particular folder where the files are held.
Q1. The folder permissons have 'EVERYONE' set to tick on everything
Read & Execute
List Folder contents
There is also [company name]/Administrators - they have the same settings as above.
There is another group for everyone [CompanyName]/[CompanyName]
How can we prevent access to this folder for everyone?
The problem is in the VB.Net application, there are some forms that creates a file in that folder and 'everyone' who logs into this application are allowed to generate a file
that is written to this folder BUT we don't want them having access to the folder to see all the files.
The software (VB.Net) actually generates files by a logged in user but they shouldn't be able to access the folder when they go to the My Computer->Network->Folder.
We need to make sure it is creating the files and can view documents within the software only.
What can be done on the folder for Q1?
Would appreciate the help
