I found there's no way to set the permission to prevent deleting file and folder, but can move file and folder and can rename file and folder.  If I uncheck delete permission, user can't rename or move file and folder.  If I check it, user can rename or move file and folder, but also can delete file and folder.  Pls help!

That is by design, because when you move a file or folder it is  being copied and deleted at the source afterwards. If you have no delete permission, you cannot move. Same goes for rename I assume.

Thanks for the replies! :(

I thought MS needs to revise this for user's different requests.
