Restricted File Permissions /Executing File RRS feed

  • Question




    Newbie.  Have test domain with Windows Server 2003 and XP Professional at the local machines.  I would like for XP Professional machines to be able to save text files to a shared folder on the server.  However, once they are saved I would not like them to be able to get them back out, delete them, move them, or change them.  At the same time I would like for them to be able to see that they are in there.


    I have been able to do this.  There is one thing I don't like.  If the XP Professional machine goes to open the saved file on the Server It will execute the file.  There won't be any data showing, but it will open the notepad window. 


    My question is is there any way through advanced file permissions that I can stop notepad from opening up when they try to open a file that has been saved to the share?  I'm sure I can do it by restricting notepad, but I would like to do it through file or folder permissions.


    I believe I have done this in the past.  I don't know why I can't do it now.  I thought you should be able to do it through the Traverse Folder /Execute File Permissions?


    Thanks in advance

    Hi vze2mss6, after checking the issue, it seems this is a general system related issue. As this forum focuses on Windows SteadyState specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to the following forum:
