I've been trying for a while to figure out permissions with no luck. Probably haven't googled the right questions, but I'm hoping you can help me.
My case is this. After installing Windows 7, I for some reason managed to delete a parent folder which was too big for the Recycle Bin and therefore I lost it. I'm trying to make sure this won't happen again, but still maintain full control of all subfolders and files (which I want to be able to delete). I'm sure it's easy, but it's driving me nuts. Also hoping I can do everything from the parent folder as there are a lot of subfolders.
I've deleted all the default permissions and added my own user name in Security: Group or user names. Then in Advanced permissions, I've tried a few different things I thought would work. For instance: Allow Full control for this folder, subfolders and files. Then: Replace all child object permissions from this object. Then I add a Deny Delete for This folder only. I suppose you can't Delete and Allow at the same time, but was hoping Deny would override it.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!
