Restricitng user permissions to prevent deletions stops Office 2010 saving files
Posted on 2011-02-15
On an SBS2008 server, a user group has only the following permissions: Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Read, Write.
Previously the whole network used Office 2003, and this prevented users from deleting files or folders, or moving them.
Office 2010 wants to write a temporary file (permitted) then once the actual file is saved, delete it (not permitted), thus the save operation fails with Access Denied.
There must be a workaround for this. I need Office 2010 working but I can't have users being able to delete or move files and/or folders
