Delete Permission on LAN folder

By jackycheah ·
I'm having problem to setup the Delete permission on LAN folder. Let's say my company is using Win XP SP3 and has a LAN folder as below. I grant a group of users the read and write permissions on this "acceptance" folder. I deny the "Delete" permission for this group so that they won't be able to delete this "acceptance" folder by accident. I do allow the "Delete subfolders and files" for this group so that they can create or delete folders/files underneath this "acceptance" folder.

O:\acceptance\

The problem is if user right clicks on the acceptance folder and accidently select Delete, it would delete anything resides underneath the acceptance folder. This is not good. I want user to be able to delete anything underneath the acceptance folder ONLY IF user is INSIDE the acceptance folder. If user right click on the acceptance folder and select delete, he/she shouldn't be allowed to delete anything undeneath the acceptance folder. So is there anyway to achieve this? Please help. Thanks in advanced.

Users group

by patb071 In reply to Delete Permission on LAN ...

are tehre any other groups or users in the security folder for acceptance? what are the settings for the "USERS" group? All permissions are inherited by default if they have full control of the o drive then by default it will inherite the permission. Also how are you testing this? Have you created a folder with test files? Is the outcome the same?

Users group

Thanks for your reply. I added just one user group for acceptance. The settings for this group on the acceptance are as follow:-

Allow - Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Read, Write, Delet Subfolders and files

Deny - Delete, Change Permission, Take Ownership

I tested the setting by adding files or creating folder to the acceptance folder and then try to delete them.

The problem is if user right clicks on the ?acceptance? folder and accidently select Delete, it would delete anything resides underneath the ?acceptance? folder. This is not good. I just want users to be able to delete anything underneath the ?acceptance? folder ONLY IF users navigate INSIDE the ?acceptance? folder. But if users right click on the ?acceptance? folder and select delete, they shouldn't be allowed to delete anything underneath the ?acceptance? folder. So is there any way to achieve this?

parent child propogation of rights and permissions

by CG IT In reply to Users group

if the parent folder permissions allows delete including subfolders and files the child will inherit those permissions.

here's a microsoft support article that has a chart listing NTFS permissions and what they do. Note there is a delete, then there is a delete subfolders and files. both effect users ability to delete.
