    Hi all,

    I'm pretty new on Windows Server. I'm working on 2008 R2 trying to apply some GPOs.
    My problem is the following:

    I've first hidden and restricted access to the system drive via User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Windows Explorer

    However I would need my users to have access to a certain directory so I've defined read/write privileges via computer configuration/windows settings/security settings/file system

    I still can't access this folder though.

    Does anyone have an idea ?

    Are you mapping to the area they need access to?.
    What does it say when you try to go into the folder?.
