Hi,

I have tried to set the special permission delete. - I have set to allow delete files and folders.
The share permission is read and traverse. The problem I am having is I have taken away write permission to a folder to enforce use of document management system. When they move their files into doc management system they cant delete from the file server as they no longer have write permission. We now have both source and destination file (duplicate copies.

Where can i allow delete and not write please.

The Advanced folder/file permissions is where you do that. You can either set "Allow" or "Deny" to a specific attribute.

Please see below for a detailed explanation:

I hope his helps you further.

Have the users logged off and on again in between?  Permissions usually only grip after the user has reauthenticated with the server. Have you turned off inherited permissions? Have you set the permissions for the right users (e.g. Domain Users)? Might be stupid questions, but just to confirm.

What about the sharing permissions? Are those folders shared directly? Maybe it would be worth to look at those, too. Shouldn't matter, but...

sharing permissions are limited - only read write or full controll. But yeah im thinking i have to give write share permssion. - However as the folder tree is deep with terrabytes of data and permissions where i want to  "take away" write permsiion - i want to avoid giving write/share permission

Hm. This is curious. Maybe try too make a new security group in AD and see if permissions will work better with that once you have added users, or, try and add a single user and see if that works better.
