[NTFS File Permissions] Stop Files Being Deleted from Network Shares

I cannot figure out how to prevent files from being removed from a networked folder. Spreadsheets and other Office documents are included in the folder and must be generated, edited, and saved by several users from numerous clients without being erased.

Windows gives new files and folders the default permissions when they are created. If you want to deny users to delete files or folders, you should change the permissions:

1. To change users' rights, right-click the file or folder you wish to change them for, choose "Properties", and then select the "Security" tab.

2. The Permissions for Object dialog box will appear when you click "Edit".

3. Click "Add" to configure permissions for a group or user whose name does not already show in the "Group or user names" section. Click "OK" after entering the name of the user or group you wish to provide access. Click the group or user to alter or delete permissions for that entity.

3. Select the "Allow" or "Refuse" and check the Permissions for "User or Group" box to grant or deny permission. Click "Remove" to eliminate the group or user from the "Group or user names" box.
