NTFS Permissions

Hi

I question concerning NTFS permissions.

We have a parent folder with 30 sub-folders, Permissions are set at top level which filter through to all other sub-folders and files. Is it possible to set permissions for users to not be able to delete all folders but can delete files within them.

Hope that makes sense

You can try to give the permissions on the parent folder give the users almost absolute freedom to make any change... except that the "delete" box is unchecked - so users cannot delete/move/rename this important folder by accident.

Moving on to the second permission set for the same user (which apply not to the folder itself, but to its contents), we see the exact same rights granted to the user, including "delete" privileges.

So, users can do anything they wish to the subfolders and files, including deleting/moving/renaming them.

Also check this earlier thread for Windows allow users to create/modify/delete FILES, but not folders/subfolders: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/440539-windows-allow-users-to-create-modify-delete-files-but-not-folders-subfolders

How Permissions Work

Hope this helps!
