  • Protecting Shared folders on servers

    I can’t find a way of protecting shared folders.
    The goal is to prevent Administrators from unsharing a couple of shared folders on specific servers.

    Any idea?

    You will need to create some delegated administrative users to ensure that they can only perform the tasks they are supposed to. As an administrator, you can take ownership of shares even if you attempted to lock it down and still get the required access.

    You could consider setting a deny permission on the folder by adding the relevant administrators to it and granting deny permission to the folder for the AD group. Not sure whether it will work but worth testing.
