NTFS Deny Delete permission issue
Posted on 2011-03-09
I support a company that have a Windows Server 2003 domain environment w/ windows 7 client PC's. Recently the company has asked me to disallow a specific user to delete any files in a shared folder on the server called DATA. So I went to security on this folder and set the DENY DELETE and DENY DELETE SUBFOLDERS AND FILES for this specific user.
The user cannot delete anything which is good, but it also has caused a bad side effect of leaving behind temp office 2007 files (ex: A36432A0.tmp) whenever user modify's a word or excel doc. Why is this happening. What would be the way to not let this specific user delete files but also not leave behind these annoying temp files that are rapidly accumulating.
