I have a small network of windows 7 computers on a LAN. I have a scenario with the following folder structure
- Parent Folder A
- Sub Folder X
- Sub Folder Y
I want to share out folder A as Read/write by everyone. Then on other computers I can do "map network drive" to it. Let's say I map this to N:/
I want to share out Sub Folder X as Read-only by everyone. Then on other computers I can do "map network drive" but when X is accessed via this path the folder and files are read-only. Let's say I map this to P:/.
I got this to work in XP but for some reason it does not work in Win 7. What happens is that when I access P:/ the share is read-only as expected. When I try to access to access N:/ every folder except Sub Folder X is read/write. Sub folder X is read-only.
On the host computer, if i right click X -> properties -> security, I can see that the behaiour is correct (i.e. everyone only has "read&execute" and does not have "Full Control")
Does anyone know how i can get the desired behavior?
