I want users to be able to create a folder, rename that folder and create files and folders inside of it.
I do not want them to be able to delete the folder or files.  If I give them everything but delete folders
and files they can create a folder but not rename it.  Thanks for your help!

"Rename" and "Create" will require the same permissions as deleting the folder.  You can give them "Full Control" and deny delete and delete subfolders and files options on the folder, this is done in the advanced portion of the folder security settings, select the name of the user or group and then edit the user / groups permissions.

If you are inheriting permissions from above you will need to "Copy" the current permissions then make the changes listed above.


Cheers,

So are you saying that there is no way to do what I would like to do since you need "delete folders and files" to be a ble to rename a folder?  Thanks!
