Deny permissions always get priority over permit permissions, so the easiest method is that you have to set everybody as Deny for delete. Depart the other permissions whole. It does not matter who the holder is, everybody will be blocked from deleting the files until they go throughout the steps to take ownership as well as after that take out the deny permission, after that you have to go back as well as delete.

If you would like to set the permissions to an exacting user you be able to perform that. You be able to set permissions to an exacting user to protect your files. For that you have to Right-press the file or folder, as well as after that you have to press Properties. Then press the Security tab. Then press a user name or group in Group or user names. You be able to select the user for whom you desire to set the permissions. Then Highlight the user name as well as press on Edit.
