Restricting users to add/create folders in a network drive

By jmerrea ·
Im having problems with setting up the restrictions to deny users from creating folders on a network drive. What I just do is:

1)Right click the network drive, then Properties.
2)Go to Security tab then add some users
3)And for the restricted users, I edit their restrictions under the Advanced button and edit the permissions.
4)I tried to Allow all the Permissions except the "Create Folders / Append Data" which is Deny

Then after that I try to log in to that restricted user and try to create a folder. Creating a folder is restricted but the problem is the user can not modify the files under those folders. I tried to modify a text file under that folder and save the file but it also restrict me to save the changes I made.

What I only want is to restrict the user from creating a folder from that network drive but "Not" restricted to modify those files under it. Is this possible. I hope someone would try and see it and help to figure it out.

Thank you so much! ^_^

Now the folders

OK so you've modified the security at the parent level to deny creating of the folders.

In addition to what you've already done, you need to select the existing folders and go to their security/permissions to a)not inherit from the parent, and b) allow write/modify of files.
