Visibility of sub-folder under a share folder

    Hi all,

    In our company server (Windows 2003 standard), there is a shared folder. And
    every computers in the company map to this folder as drive Q. There are over
    30 folders under drive Q in the same level. Depending on different group,
    users can access to different folders. But even though user cannot access
    into the folders which are not permitted, they still can see those folders
    under the drive Q. It is not necessary for the users to view those folders.
    In fact, it will cause confusion and it is not convenient to the user. Is
    there any way I can do to make those folders invisible? (What I am talking
    about here is the sub-folder under the shared folder. For shared folder, I
    know I can add a $ to hide it.) For some reasons, we have to put the
    sub-folder in the same level, instead of drilling down the structure and
    putting them into different levels.

    Any of help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Yes.

    You need to install Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2003 on your server.
