    Exactly. I want to protect subfolder1 and Folder1 from being deleted.

    Put a bog standard Modify permission on Folder1 inherited to SubFolder. Then add a manual "Delete" deny to both for that folder only.

    You don't need to add permissions to delete stuff that's already included under the modify.

    Then Folder1 and SubFolder can't be deleted, everything else can (Or should do I'll test it quickly)

    Can't delete Folder1, or subfolder. But can add/delete any other files/folders under that, working here as tested. But as always please check it's as you want, before putting it live

    It shouldn't be hard to get it working properly, but it really just depends on exactly what you're actually trying to achieve.

    I have something fairly similar configured, which I've basically got setup as follows:

    Students - Read & Execute (This Folder Only)
    (Which means that the root folder is essentially read only as far as the students are concerned. They can't create/modify/delete anything at the root level.)

    Students - Read, Write & Execute (Subfolders only)
    (The idea being that the teacher creates a (sub)folder [IE: English Assignment], which the students then have permissions to save/write to as needed.
    NOTE: They can write INTO the folder, but they can't actually modify/delete the folder itself, which is basically what you want, right?)

    Creator Owner - Modify
    (Students can modify/delete their OWN files, but not the files of any other users)

    I'm not sure how well that meshes with what you're actually trying to achieve, but it might at least help set you on the right path ...

    Bingo!! Thanks steve. This is all on test folders anyway. Ive just tried it and it seems to work. Ill test it properly now and then I will make the changes to a script which will hopefully automate this folder creation.

    Thanks again

    Aye, just thought best to say before I get shouted at for breaking a school!

    Back to blowing things up! Shout if it doesn't work properly.
