Shared folder root ?

Copper Contributor



For my office I need to share few folders:

- PubR -> read only access

- PubRW -> read\write access to everyone

- Scans -> r\w access to some department

- Managers -> it will have one sub folder for each department manager

- Depts -> one sub folder for each departments


Is it better to have one shared folder with five subfolders , or five shares?

Which are pros and cons of the two options?

Obviously, employees will have different permissions on each shares.

Its better to make one root (Data) folder and create subfolder as your requirement . Do NTFS permission with inheritance permission according to department. Make sure Security Group created for R/O and R/W.
Thank you very much.
