Drop folder permissions and access for Windows share

Hi All

Is there a particular permission configuration that I could use to set up folder access, so users can write to it (similar to a drop folder access) but they can only read files that they've dropped (i.e. they can’t read/modify files that are not dropped by them)

Is this possible please?

OS: Windows Server 2012 R2

Sure.
Setup write access for anyone. Then setup read+write for the generic account creator/owner.

create two groups and assign permissions to its members. one group should have read write access other should have add and read access. make the members appropriately.

What would "add and read access" be?

Prashant, this will not work. Please try it with an office word document and you will see. After "dropping" it, you cannot work with it, because office requires full read-/write access and also delete access to clear the temporarily created file.
I know that since we have solved it the way I described many years ago and down that road, failed with your approach.

OK now I understand this - as it worked when I was using txt files. When it comes to creating temporary files you have problems as temporary files are created in the same folder. to fix this problem you can change the temporary file location to your local drive as if you give change permission then you give delete permission by default. however I am cheking it now and get back to you shortly.
