Access to subfolder without having access to parent folder

By cdlondon ·
I need for a user to be able to access a subfolder by browsing through the directories, but I don't want the user to be able to see any files in any of the folders above this folder.
Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
I have given the user the traverse folder permission, but that doesn't work.
They seem to only be able to browse through the folders if I give them read rights on the folders. This however, allows them to see the files in the folders.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Share the Sub folder or File that you want to share

You don't need to share the entire Drive or Folder Listing all you need do is right click on either the Sub folder or File and chose Share this and then just click away to whatever level of access you wish to allow.

Applying permissions...

by doyle.jack In reply to Access to subfolder witho ...

Be sure you are applying permissions properly. Remember, you can apply permissions to folder only, folder and files, folder, files and subfolders.

When you set the permissions, be sure the target (or scope) for those permissions is also set properly.
