Network share permissions
We have a 2008 server with a share that is used by multiple people for file storage of their personal data from their 10.5 stations. There is one share with read access for everyone and a sub-folder for each user with that user having full access and everyone removed. The theory being the users can access the share providing their login information and then navigate to their folder where they will have write access based off of the folder permissions. In practice though they have read access and no write. How can I solve this short of making a share for each user?

Do you mean Windows 2008 Server? If so, you might want to try consulting a Windows-based forum or a Windows-based consultant. Even though you're dealing with 10.5 clients, it sounds like your problem would be better solved from someone with experience in the Windows server system.

The issue is you created the share permissions as read only. That, in effect, overrides the actual NTFS file/folder permissions, since the main permissions are assigned by the network share.
The solution to this problem is actually pretty easy. Change the share permissions to "Full Control" for "Everyone". Now, go into the Security tab on the actual shared folder, and change that to read only. Then, for each sub-folder, right click it and choose Properties. Click the Security tab and set the permissions of the folder to whatever you want.
This is a best practice in Windows sharing, because this way, if you ever move the share to another drive, your permissions follow the files to the new drive, and the only change you have to make is to re-share the main folder with Full Control for Everyone.
