NTFS and Global Group Permissions

By matt.wong ·
There are 2 Global Groups, "Company Staff" which consists of all employees and "Business Dept" which consists of a few employees in the business department. The people in "Business Dept" are also members of "Company Staff". If I set a NTFS Read permission on a folder for the "Business Dept" and don't include "Company Staff", will the business people be able to access this folder? I know that if No Access is specified for "Company Staff", then no one gets access. But I'm not sure what happens if I just specify for Business and don't assign permissions for Company.
Hopefully this doesn't sound too confusing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

If you put permissions for "only" that group to "read only" then that is the only group that will be able to see it. However, by default, everyone is given full access. So when you go to give that group rights you will have to remove the everyone full control.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

If the permissions are for the Business group then only they can get access.
If you were trying to do it the other way, company but not business, then you would need to exclude them.
Remember to remove the default Everyone with full access.

One thing that got my attention is you said NTFS permissions. If this is for people accessing the drive/folders from the network you need to make sure you share the folders you want to give access to. I would put permissions on the shares and not the NTFS permissions although you can do it either way. The folders must be shared for the users to even see them

Hope this helps.

THE ANSWER IS YES,WHEN YOU CREATED THE FOLDER
EVERYONE HAS FULL CONTROL.YOU WANT TO ASSIGN
EVERYONE WITH "NO ACCESS"ADD YOUR "BUSINESS
DEPT" WITH READ PERMISSIONS WHICH IS WHAT YOU
WANT.IF YOU WISHED TO ASSIGN CERTAIN USERS WITHIN YOU "BUSINESS DEPT" TO CHANGE CONTENTS
YOU COULD DO THAT AS WELL.REGARDS
