Dear Experts,

I would like to have users create, read, write and do whatever he can but should not have option to delete the folders in a shared location. No matter if that folder is created by the user itself.

Please provide exact steps as how to accomplish this on a windows server 2003.

That's not possible in Windows. For these requirements you need to grant for user "Modify" permissions. That means he/she can read/execute/write/delete folders/files

NTFS is not so granular that FFS or EXT file systems in Linux/Unix. Sorry to say that ;)

Krzysztof

It is true, you cannot grant... but can deny the permission!!

On the folder go to Security tab, advanced options... in that window tag the user you want and click edit.... scroll in "apply to.." and choose "this folder and sub folders", below you can tag special permissions,  simply deny the Delete permission and apply.

You can deny users for deleting files. To do this go to the Security tab of the properties of the shared folder.
Select the user or group and click on the advance button on the bottom of the window.

A new window will open.
Select again the user or group in the permission tab and click on the edit button.

Now you can deny delete subfolders and files.

But this way, you will cut off of writing new data in those folders. Users won't be able even to modify existing files in those folders :]

As I said, that's not Linux ;)
