WHat combination of NTFS permission can I use so users can't delete files from a Network share using DFS but so they can still modify and create new files. I'd like to also know how to configure a group that have the delete privilege so they are the only one that can delete a file on that share.

Thanks!

Hi!

Assign users all permisions except "Modify" and they should be able to create new files and modify existing files. They won't be able to rename files, because renaming requires delete permissions. This is by design and there is no workaround.

If you want only members of one froup to delete files, assign this group "Modify" permission.

If in this case I have one user that is part of both groups will the least restrictive apply?

No, cumulative permissions (least restrictive) apply for users in multiple groups on NTFS volumes.
