NTFS permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I wish to create a shared folder for archive records. All users should be able to place files and/or folders in the archive area and then be able to read/copy them to their own storage but should not be able to modify or delete files that have been placed in the archive area. I have tried various permission settings but have not been able to achieve this. Either I can retrieve the files or folders and also modify and delete them or I cannot access them at all. I have checked the other related topics but have not been able to get a solution. Can you help please? In the meantime I will continue trying to resolve and will update if successful. Thanks, Ed.

  • Hi,

    If users could place files to the folder, users will have Write permission. Then they will also have permission to modify. So I'm afraid there is no solution of the requirement.
