Is it possibile to give a user Write permission to a folder without Read? I need to let users write files in a folder without letting them read files currently in the folder. Is this possible in windows?

Yes.

1. Right click folder
2. Select Properties
3. Select Security Tab
4. Select Edit
5. Select Add
6. Select who you are giving permissions to
7. Once added remove check mark from Read & Execute, List folder contents and Read under allow
8. Place check mark in Write under allow
9. Click Apply
10. Click OK

That should do what you are after.

Write without Read?  No. If a user can Write to or Modify a file, they can read it as well.

Actually, you are both half right. Thus splitting the points. When I have the opportunity, I'll post my solution. Thank you!
