I can't seem to take away users rights to delete a file.
I have a network folder that has 'domain users' full rights.
I want to make it so 1 file in that folder cannot be deleted.
I've tried removing 'domain users' rights completely, yet they can still delete the file.
I've tried adding 'domain users' and selecting 'deny' for all rights, and a user can still delete the file.
I don't want to change permissions on the folder since I want users to be able to do anything in the folder, except for deleting this 1 file.
What am i missing. (sever16 and Windows10)
