I need help with folder permissions; this is what I’m trying to do. My folder structure looks like this:
Folder A
            Folder B
                  Folder C
I do not want any user adding folder or files under Folder A or Folder B I have that handled. Folder C is where I need help. The user can create files and folder under Folder C but I do not won’t the user to be able to change Security permission on any file or folder even the ones they create.  The user should be able to rename file and folder and modify the existing files. Thanks

Break inheritance and only give the users no more than modify permissions in NTFS for that folder, child folders and files. Modify permissions does not allow users access to security settings. Full contol does, best practice would only give admins Full control in most circumstances.

When users are owner of their files, they automatically are assigned full access, at least on the file.
So for folder C, while users are not owner, Modification on sub-folders and files should be ok, but they will have access to security on each file where they are owner of the file.

When users create files and folders they are the owners of the files and folders you can not sstop them from changing or deleting the files and folders they create.
