What NTFS permissions should I apply to give a user the ability, to create, write files and delete (his/her) own files only, plus not be able to delete others files, or move the folder?

What I currenty have is --> apply onto this folder, subfolders and files
and have these checked off..

Traverse folder/execute file
lister folder /read data
read attributes
read extended attributes
create files/write data
Write attributes
wriet exended attributes
read permissions

Is it right??

    owner usually gets full permissions so the folder & files you don't want them to mess with would need to be owned by some one else.
