Allow users to delete files/folders but not add

We are in the process of transferring our files into a document management system.   We currently have them stored in folders on a network share.   I need to make all of the existing folders/files read only so that the users can open the files, make changes to them and then save them into the document managament software.   I do not want them being able to save back to the network share.   However, i do want for them to be able to go in and delete the file/folder from the network share once the file is successfully transferred into the document management software.   What is the best way to accomplish this?

And this is best done by using the advanced tab for the nfts permissions?  Is it best to create a new security group and assign the correct rights to this new group? and do I need to i need to change or remove any of the permsission that are given to the normal users group?  The normal users group has special permissions that i dont think i can change.  I would need to remove this group i believe.

creating a new group is a good choice, but u need to remove the permission given to the other groups other wise they may override the permission given to this new group.

ok, that should be no problem.   There are hundred of thousands of child objects so i want to make sure the changes filter down correctly.   I have seen three places to select options about child permissions.  On the advanced settings tab, there is a checkbox to allow inheritable permissions from the parten to progate.....I am assuming this needs to be unchecked.

Right under that is a checkbox to replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here....does this need to be checked?

If you click to edit the advanced permissions, there is another checkbox at the bottom of that screen to apply these permissions to objects and/or containers within this container only.   Does this need to be checked?

Yes u need to uncheck this

this needs to be checked this will replace permission on all the objects recursively

>>If you click to edit the advanced permissions, there is another checkbox at the bottom of that screen to apply these permissions to objects and/or containers within this container only.   Does this need to be checked?

Do not check this, coz it will aply the permission only on the object thos are in this folder means permission will not propagete to the files/folder under its sub folders.
