I have a Windows Server 2003 file server with a shared folder to which a
number of additional users have recently been granted access. I have now
been advised by one of the data owners that they don't want any of the "new"
users adding or removing folders in order to maintain the folder structure.
The new users are allowed to add, delete and modify files.
I set up a new group for the data owners giving them Full Control over the
shared folder, and edited the Advanced NTFS permissions for the existing
group (of which the new users are now members) with the following check boxes
Create Folders/Append Data
Delete Subfolders and Files
Unfortunately doing the above results in the group members having Read Only
access to all of the files within the folder structure. Having performed
several internet searches I tried using the "Apply to" dropdown box to
restrict my changes to "folders and subfolders" or "files only", however for
some reason this seems to result in the group losing access to folders or
I assume I'm doing something wrong but I can't figure out what that may be?
I even tried just removing the "Delete Subfolders and Files" permission, but
when I logged on with a test account which was a member of the group in
question, I was still able to delete a subfolder within the folder structure?
I would be very grateful if someone could provide me with step-by-step
instructions (or a link to the same) which would show me how to accomplish
Many thanks in advance.
