Write but not Delete Folder Permissions

Hiya Experts :o)

I have a folder with "List Folder Contents" permissions for the group "Officers" so that they cannot access the files within it or the subfolders.

However, there is one subfolder, "Officer Reports"(Includes "Read and Execute", "List Folder Contents" and "Read" Permissions), which contains one particular subfolder called "Completed Officer Reports" that I would like to give different permission for the group "Officers":

I would like the "Completed Officer Reports" folder to allow the group "Officers" to:
Open the files and read them
Save new files to the folder
and....
NOT allow the deletion of files in the folder

After consulting the company IS team, they said that if a group is allowed permission to save files to a folder, they will be allowed to delete files from the folder also and that there is no way around this.

Just want to confirm whether or not this is true please.  Please only answer if you are 100% sure.

Thanks in advance for your help.

so, using the 'advanced' settings under permissions, you can give them 'create files' but not 'delete' on the directory only, and that should do what you want...
