Restricitng user permissions to prevent deletions stops Office 2010 saving files

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

try granting creator/owner deletion rights to the folder contents, so it someone creates the temp file they can also delete it.

other than that you have no other way to make this work. as.. office relies on these temp files to show other office used by other users the file is open and locked for editing.
