User Folder Assignment In Active Directory

By salmanniaz ·
i have setup Windows 2003 server, an effectively joined all the computer to the network using domain controler.

i have three users. A,B,C in active directory Account.

and i have allocated a folder which is shared for each user on server side.

problem is when a user 'A' Logins, its good and find its maped Drive(or say folder), But as well he can go in to the user 'B' folder, similarly the case with the User B and C.

I do not know how to implement the security,
that only a specific user can open or access his own folder not others.

i am doin this by right click on the User Accoutn,
Go to Profile tab, Under Home Folder
Connet to z:\\servername\Users\A,B,C

but not able to implenet security...
plz tell me how to do that..??

Go to each folder and check the NTFS permissions for who is able to read and list the folder's contents. Most likely it is set to EVERYONE or Authenticated Users.

Assign permissions to the specific user account, but do not remove SYSTEM or Domain Admins or Enterprise Admins, or you will lose the ability to control the folder.

Of course, you can always go in and seize the permissions in the event you need to perform work in the folder.

I would recommend picking up a book on NTFS permissions and studying it.
