How can you have a folder that is read-write(create) and a file in that folder to not allow you to delete it, but write to it?

Is this a local folder or remote? You need change permissions to delete. Review the share/NTFS permissions and hopefully this will help, I know it gets tricky here.

NTFS only

by robertp In reply to Windows NT Workstation

Remember that file permissions are only available on an NTFS drive. This is not possible on a FAT drive. An Administrator can set the individual permissions on each file, regardless of the folder permissions.

Special Access Permissions

by geo1 In reply to NTFS only

Use Windows Explorer to the File in question.
Assuming you have Rights,
Right Click on the File.
Click on Security Tab
Click on Permissions
Select the User Group you want to modify
Click the Down Arrow next tho the TYPE OF ACCESS Window.
Choose Special Access
Choose the specific desired permissions.
