We have a Scans folder that is shared on the network. We want the users to be able to rename but not delete the file. Is this possible through group policy?

You need to set this in the NTFS permission and not group policy.

Are you talking about the files under the share, or the share itself?

Hi!

You won't be able to achive this. File permissions can be set through Group Policies, but you can't configure permissions to be able to rename files bot not delete them. Delete permission is required for renaming files, this is by design and there is no workaround.

mrwalker15,
I'm talking about files inside the share.
