How can we allow users to create folder directly on a shared drive without allowing full control? WIndows 7

We have set up active directory to allow certain users to save files and folders into a shared drive but not delete or rename them.  Once the folder is created, they can also save files directly in the folder but they can't create the folders directly from the SAVE AS file dialog.  They can't and shouldn't be able to delete or rename anything in the folder.

 Right now their workflow is to create a folder in MY DOCUMENTS and cut and paste it into the shared drive then use our reporting application to save files under that folder.  We'd like to allow them to create a folder in the restricted drive directly from the application using the standard Save File Dialog of Windows 7 (64).  We get an error saying the file can't be created under that name.  A "NEW FOLDER" is created however, but can't be renamed.

We suspect this is a symptom of Windows creating a temporary folder during the save as process which the user is not allowed to change but this is outside my area of expertise.

What we want is for the user to be able to create a folder and name it directly in the restricted drive without having to drag it from a nonrestricted location.

Here is a picture of permissions for one user.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

So.. you only want users to add files/folders to the folder, but not modify/rename/delete anything in it.. But then you also want the user to be able to create new folders and name them appropriately (at the creation point of the file).

You can't restrict it so that they can only rename a folder in one instance, but not another.. either you give them permission to do it or you don't. And unfortunately, from what I understand, you can't allow them to rename something without giving them "delete" permissions, since a "modify" is technically a "delete and create".

So the create folder dialog is actually creating then renaming the folder at the time of creation (which isn't allowed) rather than just creating a new folder?

I'm thinking, just like the forum in the link you sent, the best work around is to create the folder of desired name locally then copy and paste it into the restricted drive.  That has been a hassle for our clerks.
