Windows Server 2008 Permissions

How do I grant permissions on a Windows 2008 Server so that only one person can delete folders, but everyone else can do everything else.

Yes, same way. In the Advanced security settings under special permission, just select everything except Delete and Full Access. But be sure to disable the inherited permissions, or they can still get the rights from the parent folder.

I would remove the inheritance on the folder then create two groups. One for standard access and one that has the delete rights. Add the groups to the security properties of the folder and in the Advanced security settings under special permissions you can select or deselect the delete option. Don't use deny rights. It'll work but it gets you in trouble in the long run. But that's just from a general system management point of view.

Thanks.  Another question.....is there a way to set permissions so that users can do everything but delete or move folders?
