NTFS permissions: How to recursively apply to content, not to folders?
Posted on 2016-08-02
I just spend quite a while thinking up a new filing structure with a customer. We thought up a rather complex concept on how to store his information and I am now faced with the quest to protect it from accidental movement or deletion of folders.
What I want is this: Users should be able to read, execute, write, change and delete all content in the pre-defined folders. They should also be allowed to create new folders, and they may also delete those. But I want to protect the predefined folders so that users don't delete them.
I realize this can be done by touching each individual folder and setting the permissions accordingly. Is there a simple way?
