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.
