NTFS Permissions - Subfolders and Files, Modify not working

Experts,

I'm trying to configure NTFS permissions on a folder to allow users to modify the contents within the folder but not the folder itself. I believe I configured the permissions correctly but unable to achieve this.

I configured the root folder as read rights and subfolders and files as modify rights.

Subfoldes and files only configured as Modify
Am I doing something wrong?

Open the subfolders and give users Modify, read & Execute. You may even need to go into advanced security settings. Check the sharing permissions as well as folder security.

What if I don't have any folders/files in them yet? I would like the users to create their own but currently get an "access denied" error.

If they only have read and execute access to the root folder, then they will not be able to create folders.

Please see the screenshot. I have "Subfolders and files only" for Domain Users as Modify. Shouldn't my users have modify permissions?

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?

But in order for the user to create new folders in the root folder, they need to have write permissions for the root. Cannot create a new folder if they do not have permission to do so.

Oh, I thought the modify permission enables users to create files/folders. Is this not how it works?

Yes, they can create folders and files in subfolders but not the root folder.
