    Permissions settings (XP)

    In a school environment, I want to create a "drop box" - a folder where students can deposit work, but they cannot see, remove or change anyone else's work. Is it possible to set permissions on a folder to accomplish this? Would separate folders for each student be necessary and how should those permissions be set?

    How are you proposing they access the 'drop box'? Windows Explorer? FTP? Why not have them e-mail it?

    I think you're right; email is probably the most bullet-proof way to go. But I started looking at the permissions approach and started to wonder whether I was missing something. I do not have extensive experience in that area.

    There is a great tool that I used at college - well I was forced to use, but it was still a great tool. Have you looked into Blackboard software at all? http://www.blackboard.com/

    on the other hand... it might also be overkill <img src=/S/shootfoot.gif border=0 alt=shootfoot width=28 height=29> and an email account could work just as well for your needs.

    edit: there may be FTP programs that have dropbox functionality
