Do not DISPLAY a Folder when a user does not have access r..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.security (More info?)

Multiple disciplines with their own user group have access
to a common project folder. Access permission to the
different folders are set for each of the user groups.

How do you prevent from DISPLAYing a folder to a user when
this one does not have permission to it?

Currently all the folders are displayed to the user and
when he attempt to access a folder for which he has no
permission an "Access Denied" message is displayed. How
can we avoid this?

    Hi

    You Cannot Configure NTFS Permissions to Hide Files or Folders
    from Unauthorized Users
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=303758

    As the KB article states, this type of access control is not supported
    by the NTFS file system.

    If it is a share rather than a folder you can hide it by adding a $ to the end of the share name. The same principle in admin shares on servers.

    Note that only works for clients that choose to. If someone queries the share
    lists of a machine with $ shares the share names are still sent to the client.
    The client then makes the determination of whether or not those will be
    displayed... Windows tends to hide those shares, but there are programs that
    will still show them...
