Not sure I'm understanding you correctly - from the perspective of file
permissions, users can only access the files they're supposed to have access
to - their own files - right? But all the users can see all the files even
though they can't open them, and that's what you're trying to prevent?
If that's the case, you need Access Based Enumeration. You can search
microsoft.com for documentation, but supposedly this download includes a
Windows Server 2003 Access-based Enumeration http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/d...displaylang=en
If I'm misunderstanding the question, please post back.
