Windows permissions, protecting a folder, but not the files

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a customer that was  surprised to find that  someone accidentally deleted a subfolder on the server. We had been having DFS problems, so I am not entirely sure it was a person that did it. Anyhow, so that this does not happen in the future, he has asked me to protect certain subfolders from deletion. He does, however, want to let users edit the contents of the folder, as they need to do so in order to do their jobs. How can this be done? BTW- There is a LOT of data in these folders (aprox 1TB)
