Arrow NTFS Permission - Prevent User Saving or Creating new files on share
  

Hi

Im currently in the process of repermissioning our department share drive.

Currently, I have granted Authenticated Users (LFC - List Folder Contents). Even tho this prevents the user creating new folders (which is a good thing), it still allows them to create/save new files in this location.

I would like to know if its possible to prevent users from saving or creating new files in a particular share / folder.



Thanks in advance.

Regards
Patrick

Re: NTFS Permission - Prevent User Saving or Creating new files on share

You can do one thing by not giving them to modify on the directories or don't give them the equivalent (e.g., Change) on the share. You can approach this two ways (in these cases leave the share permissions alone -- Change):

1) Go back and change JUST the parent directory (this controls the adding of new files). Leave the file permissions as they are so they can edit and save.

2) Setup the parent directory permissions and then go to Advanced and edit the Special permissions to remove create files and subdirectories but leave append, write etc.
