Relating to my previous question:

1) Where it´s specified that everything is denied before granting?
2) With /grant:r lusiaescrivane:(w) the User can´t rename files.
3) With /grant:r lusiaescrivane:(w,d) the User can´t delete files.

This will deny all rights to the folder for a user or a group name
icacls c:\foldername /deny username or groupname:f
Note that denying is dangerous and can make the folder inaccessible so test it on a test folder first. also note that your folder may be inheriting rights from the folder above or the root of the drive so may also have to use the /inheritance option to remove it
2) are you want to make it so that  /grant:r lusiaescrivane:(w) will stop lusiaescrivane from renaming files? and 3) so lusiaescrivane can't delete files?
