  • allowing documents to be created but not edited

    Is it possible to set NTFS permissions so that users can create and read documents and folders, but not edit them?

    I have had a play with permissions and sort of got it working, but it seems unreliable, Im wondering if there are some issues with autosave, or the temporary files that are created by some problems (word for example).

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this?

    Not that i'm aware of.

    It would need to be set on the actual document rather than the folder.
