I'm using a cygwin based SSHD server and I want to disable the /cygdrive/c and /cygdrive/d paths; is this possible? Using NTFS ACLs to achieve this will be a mess because the user will need access to the drive with the SSH daemon on it so I can't just block access at the drive level, but would need to adjust a lot of folder separately.

I am pretty sure ACLs are the only way to do this

Thanks, I went with the ACL approach in the end. – DrStalker Sep 5 '12 at 4:45
