Locked

permissions question

By MikeLazz ·
I have a really stupid permissions question that i really should know the answer to but i think it's too obvious. I need to lock down a shared folder so that the end users can only view, open, and create documents and not be able to alter or delete the documents.

the resultant set of permissions will be the most restrictive of the comination of shared permissions and NTFS permissions. Most people give the everyone or authenticated users group full permissions on the share permissions, then button down the permissions using NTFS permissions

When you share a folder the default permissions are for Everyone with Full Control. To change these permissions to what you are describing you would want to remove inheritable permissions and change the folder's permissions to:

Read & Execute
List Folder Contents
Read
Write

See this article for additional info:

Goto Windows explorer, find the folder, right-click on it, properties, sharing and there you can assign permission per user basis. Modify will allow them to delete or alter documents, if they work on a document and try to save it again they will have to save it with a different name since the original file is already there, it is better to work locally and then save the final document on the share folder. Good luck
