Hi,

We have a case where the user needs to have premission to write/read and delete but not modify the content in a folder. I cant find any options under advanced/Premissions that will fullfill this premission.

This is a very special case since its a payment file that we need to be sure that it's not tampered with.

Hi
you need to use Special permissions in this case

 Special permissions

when you configure NTFS security by fallowing option showing in Image user or group able to Create /Delete and Write data in this folder but not able to append data in it !

Example :
1: create a test folder and set  permissions as showing in picture
2: open notepad and write some text in it and now click save in file menu and save to the folder wear you set Special permissions
3: File saved ! now try to close this file and open it again and now try to change something and then try to save it
4:  tataaaaaaaaaa it will show you access denied massage

you able to delete this file , create a new file but not able to change any thing once file is created !
