i need to protect a file from being deleted by specific users. I have a databse file that everyone can access (R/w) but i want to protect the file froom being deleted by these users. I experimented with a test file. i went into the security tab for that file and unchecked the box (allow inheritable permissions from parent), so i could play with the advanced settings since delete was in that group. I added a user in this case everyone just for testing. then i chekd the delete and delete sub folders and file check box, did my applies and tried it out. The system let me delete the file. Don't know what i did wrong!
