Hi

I have a folder called e.g.  "finance"

I've created a group called finance users.

Now what I want is members of finance users to be able to append to files BUT not be able to create folders.
But it seems "create folders / append data" is only one option, where it would have been nice if it was split
into two

thanks in advance
martin

You need to set 2 sets of special permissions for this group then
1. Apply to "This folder, subfolders and files) remove (don't deny) the "Create Fodler / Append Data" permission
2. Apply to "Files only" add the "Create Fodler / Append Data" permission

Hope this helps
