I have Windows Server 2003. I shared a folder on it and gave the usesr read, write and execute permissiona. I do not want the users to delete any file or folders there i did not give them the modify permission. If they create a folder or file they cannot rename it as they get the access is denied error message. What do i need to do to allow them to rename file and folders but not delete them.

Thanks in advance

You need to modify permissiin to rename.
Modify is not the ability to change the contents of a file (thats write permission)
Modify is the ability to cange the file itself.

You will probably find you need to use Special Permissions' if you want to allow rename but not allow delete.

use "creater owner" group for this purpose so that user can modify his/her own documents/ folders
assign modify permission for creater owner group

I have used special permisions, the users currently have the following permission:
Traverse Folder/Execute File
List Folder/Read Data
Read Attributes
Read Extended Attributes
Create Files/Write Data
Create Folder/Append Data
Write Attributes
Write Extended Attributes
Read Permissions

They do not have access to the following:

Full Control
Delete Subfolders and Files
Delete
Change Permissions
Take Ownership

check the permissions- users have only read and write permissions so they can create folders but cann't modify those. you need to give modify permission for this purpose

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

Can't be done. (Without possibly some 3rd party tools) A "rename" is really just a "Move" + "Delete" so you have to give delete permissions...  Sucks, I know!

ya but delete only those that have created by them only  and not other folders. thats why we have used creater owner group - creater is the owner for that folder so have full permissions on that folder

I hate to keep being so negative... but what you want is not possible and you will spend a lot of time figuring that out. I suggest, taking one of these guys suggestions or come up with a new plan...
