New network drive

By dave.raj ·
Very easy question. We have got 4 network drives, 2 drives accessible to everyone in the office and 2 drives exclusive to certain people. I need to add another network drive, how do I do this and make it exclusive to certain people. Thanks

I am not too clear about your setup here, but it seems as if you need to set up a new partition or volume on your server and assign a drive letter.
You can then set permissions for the people needing access to that drive.
This is assuming you havean NT server or Windows 2000 server.
If yo uhave any problems setting this up please email me for help.
Hope this has been of help.

create and new folder named what you want. right click on the folder and selct properities. select sharing and give it a share namae. under the security tab remove the everyone and select the people you want to have access to the drive/folder. allof this is done from the server.
hope this help , if you want to do this with an actual drive repeat the same actions, except use the drive itself as the sharing item.

share the folder and you can set the permissions on two levels, at the sharing permissions and the folder permissions (if you have ntfs), you can share the folder and make shared name on the sharing dialog boxes. Go to the machine that has the folder, right click the folder and choose sharing.
