    Folder Security / Sharing

    Locked

    by sdalessio ·

    How can I set specific user rights over a shared folder on a Windows XP Pro operating system PC, this is a peer to peer LAN. When I select to share the folder I do not get the option to define specific user rights as I did on PCs running Windows 2000 Pro.

    Please help

      You need to disable ?Use Simple File Sharing?.

      From Windows Explorer, Tools | Folder Options.. | View | Advanced settings and uncheck ?Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended)?

      This will allow each folder and file to have ?Security? tab to set permission for Groups or users.
