I just want to make sure that I have the correct permissions set on a folder and subfolders. I do not want users to move, copy or delte any files or folders from a shared folder and all subfolders and files below that.
What permissions would I have to make sure they do not have so they wont be able to delete and move\copy?

To prevent Move and Delete, you just need to remove the Delete Permission in the Advanced Security editor (Click Advanced on the Security tab). Copying is a little more difficult to stop because it requires you to block write permissions on the folder, which means the users wouldn't be able to modify the existing files in any way.

Ok, forget about the copying then, but, specifically I need to be able to let accomplish the folowing:

1. Users cannot delete or move any folders.
2. Users can delete and create files within the folders and to create new folders as well.

Sorry for any confusion.

I solved it by doing the following:

make sure the security group has no permissions for delete and delte subfolders and files. Add the security group again and allow the delete permission and apply to "files only".
