Need to set permissions so the user can not delete his folder from list of folders, but can work inside of it fully.

Currently I have weird option where the root folder does not get deleted, but everything inside does.

All this is for developing sets of permissions for the network share.

You need to set Inheritance permission for that folders,

You can assign Read permissions to users, Instead of Read / Write or Full permission.

Rt Click on Folder --> Properties --> Security -->  Advanced, Chek the inheritance.

Go through below MS Library to know more on Inheritance.

Yes, all, fine, but the problem is that the delete command "jumped over" the root folder that had permissions set to deny deletion.

Go to Share permission properties and select the Securities Tab, click Advanced at the bottom.

Select the User end click on Edit.

Change the permissions here..

Not 100% sure if you are going to have to apply to "This Folder Only" or " This Folder SubFolders and File"

Seems to be something messed up with Inheritance..... Can you cross verify the permissions and Inheritance access.

Select Apply these permissions to objects and / or container within this container

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Dirk - but that will render all the stuff inside also undeletable. I am trying to protect the root users' folders.

Sullad - tried that already. What I don't get is how the delete can jump over? I mean - the stuff inside folder are deleteable, but I am trying to put this "block" in place exactly because of this.

You have two permissions.

Delete: Deny
Delete Subfolder and Files : Allow

Thats why a said you need check onto which object it gets applied to.
