    NTFS Advanced Permissions - Create, Write, Modify but cannot delete colleagues files

    Hi guys,

    I have a team folder setup where files are stored. In the team folder, each individual staff in the team has their own folder labelled 'Staff'

    I want to be able to grant staff to view each others files in this folder and even amend them (when they're off ill or on leave) but I don't want them to DELETE their colleagues files. So in other words they can do everything in that folder but can't delete apart from their own created file.

    I've messed around on the advanced special permissions - given User A all rights, and set to deny on delete and deny delete subfolders and files.

    It's not working the way I want it to. Anyone has any ideas?

    We're running Server 2008 SP2 and clients are on mixed XP SP3 and 7 SP1

    Thanks in advance.

    When you say not working as you'd like, what is it not doing??

    I have a similar set of folders, where users can 'drop' work into them, but not delete it once its there.. I managed to get it working ok using the Special Permission.

    On the special permissions, I've added the other team members and ticked everything apart from to deny on delete and deny delete subfolders and files.

    Anyway when I tested this with the test user, it doesn't delete but the user can't add or amend existing files - error message "you do not have priviligies to write etc, please contact your administrator"

    I noticed when I set the delete to deny for both delete and delete subfolders and files, on the normal security tab on the objects properties, read & execute, List folder contents, read, write and special permissions are ticked.

    Have I missed anthing from the special permissions or done something wrong?

    Thanks.

    Are you using Office 2010 by chance? Word has some pretty powerful collaboration tools built right in that would do exactly what you're looking for.
