Advanced NTFS Premissions: Folder ReadOnly - Content Modify RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am facing an NTFS problem ...

    Directory structure as follows:
    * E:\public : users have read only, cannot modify, rename or delete the subfolders
    * E:\public\userN (N = 1 to 100) : user can modify the content, create folders, files, delete folders and files. (1 folder per user, 100 users)

    I have put the following permissions (with inheritence):
    * E:\Public : users read & execute
    * E:\Public\userN:
    (this folder only) - users "Create Files / Write data" + "Create Folders / append data"
    (subfolders and files only) - users modify
    * E:\Public\userN\subfolder: users modify (inherited)
    * Shared permission: users change on \\server\Public

    My problem is the following:
    1. When a user tries to delete E:\Public\User1 (ie), he receives an error message telling him that the folder is protected. OK ... but the entire substructure is deleted !
    2. When a user makes a drag and drop of E:\Public\User1 on E:\Public\User2, he receives an error message telling him that the folder "user1" is protected ... but all the content is moved under E:\Public\User1\User2 !!!

    Any idea how to solves this ?
