Hi All,

I was hoping someone might be able to help me out here ..
I'm trying to setup NTFS perms on a folder so that:

Existing Files in the root of the Folder cannot be modified or deleted, but NEW files can be created/modified/deleted.

I know this sounds pretty basic .. but its got me stumped! I've tried setting up the permissions to do this in all different variations and I cannot get the configuration right!

Even if I put an explicit DENY Full Control on the files, I can still delete them if the Root folder gives me delete ability.

I'd appreciate any help you can offer,

Cheers'

First make sure that the everyone/users group has no more than read/list/execute
permissions to the drive/root folder including in special permissions.

Keep in mind that and explicit allow will override an inherited deny.

Give the appropriate group read/list/execute/write permissions to the folder in
question.

Remove or modify permissions to creator owner. Creator owner assigns permissions to
the owner of a file which may be more than you want or expect but can be helpful in
allowing a user to modify or delete files they have created.

You may need to assign explicit permissions to the existing files.

Consider giving group read/list/execute and create folders for the root folder using
special permissions and then letting users have modify permissions to new folders.

Write permission will not allow a user to deleted a file, but may allow that user to
modify a file. Some software considers a file modify as a create/delete operation.

Permissions for Word/Office files are bit more tricky because they use temp
les. --- Steve
