Files folder ACL problem on Win2k3. Please help!!!

By lqsang ·
Hi seniors,
I have a files server (also Domain Controller) with Windows server 2003. Following my clients, I give every domain user the 'modify' permission on any folders and prevent them from deleting files inside by selecting the 'deny' check box at the line 'delete' of special permissions. Then, when user browse the folder on the server and create sub folder, they cannot give it any name but default name (event when they click new -> folder then type a name while the default name New folder is highlighted). And the second problem is that they cannot save any changes to files (mostly excel files) inside or windows automatically create many files with no extension and no semantic.
All I need is just giving my users any permission but deleting.
I would appreciate very much if any one help me to solve my problem or give me some suggestion.

Everything I shearched said it can't be done in NTFS...

It seems that the delete permission is required in order to "delete" the previous "folder name" before creating the "new folder name"

What I did come across as a very "manual" solution to your problem is for the user to create the new folder on their desktop & rename it to whatever they like & then copy it over to the other drive/folder that has the restricted permissions.
