NTFS Permissions - Create Files/Folder no delete
Posted on 2007-03-19
Goal: Allow a group to create files & folders in a share, but do not allow them to delete files or subdirectories (even ones they created).
Issue: unless they have "delete" they cannot rename the files/folders. Apparently the rename option does not really allow them to rename unless delete is checked. If they have delete they can delete their own items they've created and we don't want that.
Tested the Share rights with both: Read/Modify and read only
NTFS permissions: all except delete, delete files and folders, change permissions, and take ownership. Given this, the user is supposed to be able to rename files/folders.
Observed: "delete" must be checked to rename files/folders on the share.
Is this the way it works or am I missing something?
