Special Folder Permissions

Hi,

I am trying to setup a folder with special permissions. I want to restrict the users from doing anything apart from creating new files and copying and pasting existing files as well as reading permissions.

The problem i have at the moment is that once i take away the permissions such as modify/delete etc, i try to open an existing file and do a "save as" to create a new file, but i get access denied.

Does anyone know how to achieve this? It is a confusing specification so please ask questions if you need.

Thanks,

Sam

I think you can tweak permssions by drilling down into special permssions:
1.  In folder properties, click on the security tab
2.  click on the advanced button
3.  double click on the user or group whose permssions you'd like to edit
4. that will bring up the Permissions Entry window for that user or group (see attached screenshot)
Custom Permissions window
I think to do what you want to do, I would DENY the following permissions:
Delete Subfolders and Files
Delete
Take Ownership

I hope this helps.
