Windows Server 2008.

On a Netware server it is possible to set directory rights so that a user
can copy a file into the directory and then the file disappears - the user
can no longer see or amend or delete the file. We have a reason for doing
this. Is it possible to hide files in a similar way on a Windows Server
2008? I have managed, using special permissions, to prevent users from
opening and deleting files they copy into the folder but I cannot prevent
the file names from being displayed within the folder when the folder is
opened.

Please Ask in the NetWare Forums.
This is a non-technical, relax, blowing off work forum.

Nah, it's a Windoze question; Fine for here.
Only Novell product support is a no-no.

Re: Windows Server 2008.

I read the question backwards.....

I thought he wanted to DO IT on Netware like he does on 2008.
Rather, he wanted to Do It on 2008 like he does NetWare....

Got it.

Re: Windows Server 2008.

Have you tried assigning the "Deny" permission for "List Folder
Contents" for "Creator Owner"?

I'm not testing this, just tossing guesses out.

Can you remove the "List Folder" permission?
