So I've got a Windows server with a couple of fileshares, call them
ShareA is read/write accessible to only a couple of admins, and
ShareB is read-only for all. The files on the server live side by side at
There's a folder on
ShareA that I would like to expose to
ShareB, so that the admins can change the contents of that folder from wherever they have
ShareA mounted, and those contents will be automatically made accessible to the users of
Is this possible? I've tried symlinks so far without success -- they don't appear to be abstracted by the file server as would be needed.
I am specifically trying to avoid altering share permissions here, like giving the admins write access to
ShareB, or (vice-versa) everyone else read-only for the directory in
ShareA. This question is specifically about how to avoid doing that in the most elegant way possible.
D:\ShareA\SomeFolder, which the client system knows nothing about.
ShareAmounted, Windows knows where it's supposed to be going even though the shortcut itself is talking about D: which doesn't exist, but the non-admin clients won't have that share mounted.
