I have set security on a scan folder so that each user only has access to their own files.  They can read the files and save them as, but, when I try to give them full access to delete, they can not.  I have attempted to give all users full permissions to see if they can delete that way and that does not work.  I can delete and manage files on the computer, however, I can not give them access to delete from their machines.

On the security tab, click advanced. Change the permissions here, then check the box to "replace permission entries on all child objects". This should force it on everything in the folder.

I tried that, I even attempted to set the user as the owner of the folder, still denies the user from deleting/editing the file.

The sharing properties at the parent folder level were only set to read only.  I thought that I had changed that.  Changed to full control, still allows only the user to see their folder but gives them the ability to edit now.
