    We have a computer programming class. With the install of one of the
    programming programs, a directory named 'C456' was created, (C:\C456). This
    is the directory where the students need to save their work. We have the
    computers locked down so that students can only save to their H drive on the

    How do we allow these 27 programming students to be able to save to and work
    out of C:\C456 using Active Directory?

    Thanks for your help!

    You really don't use AD for that sort of thing very often (although
    it is technically possible*).

    You merely set the permissions on the directory (for C:\C456).

    * But presuming you have dozens or hundreds of these machines
    and don't want to 'visit' each one to fix the permissions you will
    find that the Group Policy Objects have settings in Computer->
    Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> File System.

    File System allows you to get at the NTFS settings for every
    machine (where the GPO is linked) which has the same standard
    directory structure.

    Set the permissions there.

    (A Startup batch file could also do it.)
