Use NTFS permissions to limit access in the file/folder structure.

As far as I could think of, there'e no other way for webdav to implement this. You may consider use scripts to create these folders and set corresponding permissions.

In this case, you can use powershell scripts to configure the settings. Do an traversal of subfolders, pick up the names which is user related, convert the name as the real user name(e.g domain user), then add corresponding permission for the user to the

I will get back to you on the solution you suggested and i will wait for a simpler one on this forum.

I'm not sure there is any easier solution, WebDAV isn't designed to control the security, that's up to Windows. Scripting this is a viable solution, and likely the one with the least management after the fact.

i solved it by using .Net. i made an ASP.net web page and put the following code on it
Private Sub CreateWebdav_authering(ByVal vdirname As String)
Dim serverManager As ServerManager = New ServerManager
Dim config As Configuration = serverManager.GetApplicationHostConfiguration
Dim authoringRulesSection As ConfigurationSection = config.GetSection _
("system.webServer/webdav/authoringRules", "Default Web Site/" & vdirname)
authoringRulesSection("allowNonMimeMapFiles") = True
Dim authoringRulesCollection As ConfigurationElementCollection = authoringRulesSection.GetCollection
Dim addElement As ConfigurationElement = authoringRulesCollection.CreateElement("add")
addElement("roles") = vdirname
addElement("path") = "*"
addElement("access") = "Read, Write, Source"
the vdirname is the virtual directory name. i put a login page which authenticates against LDAP and when the user authenticated it passes the username as the vdirename and it activates the webdav authering rule.
