Locking down file permissions
Hello,

I need to lock down a Vista system so that user data is only stored in
either c:\users (their profile directory) or c:\temp. I don't want users
creating folders in c:\ or in some other location. I am concerned about
removing Authenticated Users from C:\, as I am not sure what it may break.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated?

thanks,
mitch

Re: Locking down file permissions
Hello,

I'd remove users that I don't want to make a new folder in C:. I did it on
C: and now I still do not have any problems, and you should not have a
problem either. Simply restrict the users' access, or delete them from the
list.

Greetings,
P. Di Stolfo
