Folder Permissions

I need a folder that I can save files in but not be able
to delete anything in.  This sounds pretty easy to do. But
when I set the permissions to not allow deleting
subfolders and files I cannot save files to the folder.  
It creates the file in the folder but the file is empty.  
It tells me that the folder has read-only permissions.  
For the permission settings I allowed everything except
the two delete options.  

I can copy files to the folder.  Once the file is in the
folder I can open it but I cannot save the file.

Is there anything I can do?

Mike

U cannot save the file already there because it has the same name. A save of an open file first does a DELETE of the old file than a write. So u must save the file under a different name!

Go into Advanced view on file permissions for the folder and make sure the groups (or Users) you want to grant access have all boxes EXCEPT Delete, Delete Subfolders and Files, Change Permissions & Take Ownership.  This will allow you to save to the file but will prevent you from deleting it.

This did not work.  It says that folder is marked as read-only.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Ahh so you now see the problem.  

It actually creates a file in the folder but it is empty.  But, yes, it does say folder is marked as read-only, when in reality it is not.  I think the easiest way for you to see this is to try it yourself, if you haven't already.

Thanks

I try it and it's working
u have to have the following permissions settings: on that folder:
in the sharing tab > Do not share
in  the security tab > grooup everyone only
all 6 allow boxes greyed
all 6 deny boxes empty
(allow inheritable... checked, but i think is not important)
clic Advanced
clic view/edit
just check the 2 boxes in the deny column, add thats all
hope i did'n forget something
luck
