In my system I have two users and 2 drive partition like (A and B). I have my files in "A" drive. If other user log into my system. I need to deny access to "A" drive only and "B" drive should be common access.

I am using Ubuntu 14.04


I guess this manual page may help you: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions

If some more sophisticated scenarios are required at some stage - ACL's may also be useful: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissionsACLs

Long story short - proper file permissions will help you.

  • Well - I'd assume (I know, assumptions are very risky) that people can read manuals and Ubuntu is a business/organization serious enough to keep their helps in proper order, with redirects to newer versions if necessary. – Jacek Apr 15 '15 at 8:45
