Hi,

I am working in a educational enviroment where we have a requirement for a folder where a student can create & save a document of some description, however, he must not be able to read any other documents which are in there, nor be able to delete any documents which are in there, I have tried various sets of permissions, but it seems to be either being able to save & delete stuff, or not being able to read at all.

If he has 'read' access to the folder, then he will have read access to the files, unless you explicitly deny read access to all files but the ones you want him to have access to.
The easier route is to create a folder for this user and then only give that user access to his folder (also works if you can use profiles).

What files/folder permissions are you currently using?

Well, he doesnt nessecarily need to read any of the files, infact, I'd prefer them not to be able to read the files after saving something in there.

For 'This folder and subfolders'
They are allowed:
List Folder / Read Data
Read Permissions

They are not allowed:
Delete Subfolderes and files
Delete

--

For 'Files Only'

They are allowed:
Traverse Folder / Execute File
List Folder / Read Data
Read Attributes
Read Extended Attributes
Create Files / Write Data
Create Folders / Append Data
Write Attributes
Write Extended Attributes
Delete

Taking off the ability to list the folder doesnt let them select the folder as it just says 'Access Denied'
It would be nice to be able to open the folder, but let it appear to be empty
