Server 2008 R2 Folder Permissions

Posted on 2011-10-12

I need to create a folder where users can add files to but not delete anything.  The Deny delete takes precedent over Write.  Can this be done and if so how?

    > Create Directory
    > Right Click > Select Properties
    > Security Tab
    > Add/Edit Users
    > Add desired users/groups
    > Check only 'Read' & 'Write' options
    > Apply

    That's it!

    It is possible. Just have a look on the following screenshots.

    I believe I did almost the same thing and they cannot create if there is a deny.  Does it have to do with the sharing?  I added them up to up  to READ and CHANGE.

    If they have Read and Change on the share it should be fine. Just for testing create another folder with those permissions.

    The Share permissions as suggested are fine. You only need to set the security permissions to create the desired limitations.

    So if you want them to be able to write then select write, read, list, etc... only need to deny delete.

    Jut for clarifivation sake:

    I created a folder
    Under Advanced Sharing I shared it
    Under Permisionsin Advanced Sharing I gave the user CHANGE and READ
    Under Security they have Read & Execute, Lister Folder Contents, Read, Write
    Under Advanced they have a Deny on Delete
    Under Advaced they gave a Deny on Delete
    When they try to create a simple new Text document when they try to name it they cannot with a message coming up that says "You need permision to perform thi action".  They can select Try again which doesn't work or Cancel.  When they select Cancel the document is created as "New Text Document"
    They AN add ext to the file and save it but they have no control over naming the file

    This is what I see with Permisions for a test user
