Make sure you don't inherit permissions from the parent folder, then set the permissions as shown in the picture. This is how we do it and it allows students to drag-and-drop their work into the dropbox. they can't open the folder so therefore can't copy other peoples work
Thanks bmdixon... that works! That's what I've been looking for. I'm sure many others can use that answer! My Students group with those (picture) permissions, worked like a champ. Just need the following checked. Traverse Folder / Execute File, Read Attributes, Create Files / Write Data, Create Folders / Append Data, Write Attributes, Read Permissions... have fun!

I've created a Group for Students and assigned those EXACT same permissions and it fails. If I give Change permissions, everything works. If I give Students READ access to the folder, an Creator Owner MODIFY permissions it works, of course now students can modifiy files that only they create. When I duplicate your screen shot w/ permissions I get a message that they do not have sufficient writes to save a file...
I know it's not rocket science, but .... ugggh!
I've gone into advanced properties, and modified the permissions to match the picture above and it gives that error..
so you have the (share) permissions to "Everyone" Read/Write AND the (security) permissions to as they are in the picture? Are you sure they're not in any other groups that may affect permissions? Like i have a "students" group and "2013" group.
This is how I have done this, a student has to create a directory with his own name and/or student number and in this directory he/she can put stuff.
Other students can not access a directory created by another student.
I've tried these settings above from BMDixon on a Windows 2008 server and tested it on an XP PC, works fine. However, I get "Location is not available" for Win7. Is anyone else having this problem?
