Windows Permissions - File Share Permission
Posted on 2014-10-20
We have a client that had an employee be fired, the employee deleted all their files from a shared drive.
We had backups so we restored the files, but now the customer wants to make the entire file share only give users the option to change files and not delete it.
I am having issues getting this done.
1. No matter what special permissions I use, the user either cant save the file if they modify it, or they can save and delete the file.
2. If a user creates a file and save it into the drive, then the file has that user on it as full permissions by default. The properties from the folder above populates down, but adds the user that created it to the folder.
My question is, how does everyone do this? My suggestion was to have a monthly backup. It will keep 28 revisions in the cloud so thats 28 months worth on top of the daily backup that is done.
Any suggestions to how we may do this or what is best practice?
