Can you give a group certain permissions to only certain file types

I am working on another issue on here concerning certain .tmp files not being deletes when Word/Excel documents are closed on our share drive. I found that the issue cannot be fixed unless you give modify permissions. According to Microsoft.com. I do not want to give ordinary users modify permissions to all files and folder on this share.

More info on this is here.

Is there any way that you can give delete permissions to an entire group to ONLY temp files. Using CACLS maybe.

If so this would solve our problem.

Not sure what you mean?  Offline access means the share can not be accessible/user can not be connected to the LAN.
Office programs use the ~filename as a mechanism to make sure no two users access the same file and are able to edit it.

The control you want can be done using a document management system.
Live link, documentum, alfresco, etc.
Users will be accessing searching it using a web interface, etc.

There is little option if you use file shares and users have to have rights.  An alternative into use a document management system where the users checkout a document access it in their local profile and if they make a change upload it back.  This process maintain access logs as well as versioning of the file that provides you a way to roll back change as well as control who can read/modify the file.

Like offline file caching? or something different?

Right but in order to do that you have to have a local copy that copies back to the server when you are connected.

Anyway, I will look into these programs and see what what my superiors think about them.

Thanks a lot.
