On my file server, I want my users to be able to create, and rename files/folders but NOT delete. I have messed around with the security permissions but can't seem to get the combination to work the way I want. Does anyone know if their is a utility out there or another way to get this to work?

I need users to be able to rename files/folders
create files/folders

CANNOT delete files/folders

Thanks

Use the Special Permissions and do not grant the delete permission

In the Security tab for the folder, hit the Advanced button.
On the Permissions tab for Advanced Security Settings, you can select or add groups/users and hit Edit.
From there you can customize completely, including just removing the delete permission.

Unfortunately for some reason Rename is part of the Delete permission :(

Not that I am aware of.
I'm guessing the reason for this, is that technically a delete and a rename are the same kind of operation. Either the user has access to edit the MFT record for the file or they don't. A delete in actuality is pretty close to a rename in the MFT mechanics.
