NTFS Permissions to allow delete of file, but not delete of file if done from containing folder
Posted on 2009-03-30
Our file server contains many MS Word and Excel files, which need to be able to be deleted to allow editing. ie temp doc with changes. On save the old file is deleted. The new one is renamed with filename.
I have set for only files to be able to be deleted, but not folders. The issue arises that if someone clicks delete on the folder containing the files then the files delete until an error pops up when a folder or the containing folder cannot be deleted.
* This also occurs if an accidental drag and drop of a folder is made and contents are moved until a folder that cannot be moved is reached.
Is there a way to only allow files to be deleted if they are explicitly selected for deletion?
