    File Permissions When Using NAS

    I have a NAS (My World Book) and I am wanting to set up file permissions for my children. I have 5 PCs on my home network--my machine is running Windows 7 pro 64 bit and the other 4 are running windows pro 32 bit. My questions:

    1. Where do permissions to folders/files get configured--in the NAS itself or in each Windows 7 machine?

    2. If it is configured in each Windows machine, is that done in User Accounts? I would assume so.

    3. Can anyone suggest a good (not too technical) guide, resource or book that can help me with managing a small home network? I know that windowssecrets.com has some e-books available but I am not sure if those are optimal.

    Thanks,

    David

    What is it specifically that you're wanting to do? Restrict your children's computer to a single folder on your network drive? Lest they inadvertently delete data from parent's folders?

    Yes, I am wanting to do exactly that--restrict my children's access to files/folders on the NAS.
