File sharing issue
Hello

With a young boy (with his own user) now using my computer, I want to make
sure that he does not delete any files. I have attempted to utilize file
sharing so that he can only read (but not modify/delete) files. However,
when I go into his user account, he is able to access the files through
explorer and delete them. Am I doing something wrong? The folders that I
have designated for sharing also now show up as a network resource. When you
view the files from his user through the network the file sharing permissions
work. What gives?

Thank you for any feedback.

Re: File sharing issue
Thank you for your response. I think I solved the problem. On our PC the
data drive had permissions for Authenticated Users. Apparently, this
overrides the permissions granted to any specific users. I deleted the
Authenticated User and then added each of the users in our house (me, my wife
and my son). I restricted the permissions for my son and that seemed to
solve the problem. I no longer have mess with shares since we are not on a
network.
