deny delete folder permissions
Posted on 2011-09-21
I have a folder template structure that is setup for each of my branch offices. Currently the Root of the folder they only have read permissions to, everything must be placed into a subfolder. They have Modify rights to the subfolders. I want to stop them from being able to delete the initial subfolders but still have the ability to create/modify items within them.
I was hoping that the 'Apply these permissions to objects and/or contains within this container only' would solve at least my root folder issue - but that doesn't appear to.
So at the root is *Branch* Data, then it has 7 subfolders. The Branch Data folder they only have read access to, so they can't put any items into this - everything must be placed within the subfolders. They have Modify access to the subfolders.
But as mentioned, with those permissions they can delete the initial 7 subfolders. How can I protect these folders while still allowing them modify rights to files within them?
(yes I know that was a bit redundant)
