NTFS Special Permission

Last Modified: 2015-03-15
Hello Expert,
We already have a shared folder on the fileserver called “Marketing”, inside this “Marketing” shared folder there are lots of other folders, subfolders and files which already created by some other users.  Now I want to add a new user say test1 to this “Marketing” shared folder.

Test1 user should only have the following permissions:-
1) Read all files which are under the “Marketing” shared folder and under all of the subfolders
2) Create new folders and new files under the “Marketing” shared folder and all of the subfolders
3) Modify the contents of all existing files and save changes into it under the “Marketing” shared folder and all of other subfolders
4) Rename all of the folders, subfolders and files under the “Marketing” shared folder
5) User Test1 should be restricted from deleting any folders, subfolders, files and even the “Marketing” shared folder itself
6) User Test1 should be restricted from taking ownership of any folders, subfolders, files and even the “Marketing” shared folder itself

Expert can you please tell me what NTFS special permissions should I give to the user test1 to achieve above abilities?
Steps I already completed are:-
1) Added the user test1 to the shared folder “Marketing”
2) Assigned the Share Permission as:-
Authenticated User = Full Control
3) I am stuck now, what NTFS special permissions should I give next to the user test1

Regards,
