How To Change Permissions On Multiple Folders For Safety Purposes

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have some important folders having important data from the company. I want that user can only have permission to access one single folder and once they are eligible, they can access multiple subfolders but, at the same time I don’t want to provide the user the full control over the folder. So how can I change permissions on multiple folders?
