I am kind of new to networking and I am trying to resolve the following situation. I tried to find a solution but I couldn't find anything proper that suits my needs. Maybe anyone here could give some clarification whether it's possible or not in the first place.
At home I have set up a
Windows Server 2008 R2 standard edition mainly as a file server.
I added some shared folders for everyone at home to access. Including a folder backup.
In that folder there is a sub folder for every family member at home. Right now, everyone is able to access all folders without asking for username / password.
What I want
That when someone tries to access the backup folder for user1, that it asks for the credentials of user1 (accessed from his/her desktop). So that only the specific user is able to access his or her backup.
- Creating an account for every user and give only that user rights on the shared folder.
- Changing the shared settings of the backup-folder itself.
- Re-sharing the user1backup folder for that user only, but this creates a complete new share (and still doesn't work).
Would it be possible to prompt for username/password (which the account has been manually made on the server) when someome tries to access that folder?
If not, are there any alternatives for this (third party tools, other methods) which someone could point out to me?
