  • Can i make permission for user to create folder, but not delete?

    I would like to create permission for users to be able to make folers and files but not delete them, is this possible.

    Also, if a user creates a folder on the data server, should i change the owner to administrtaors? If so, how can i make it so the created folder is always the admins?

    You need to explore NTFS special permissions and choose a combination that will work:

    But be careful about blocking delete permission as it may well affect saving files where a copy is made and the original removed

    In general, leave owners alone and rely on inherited permissions from the parent folder

      Oh thanks. Good thing you said that. I was just going to say to uncheck delete.
