Windows 7: security permissions


26 Dec 2010   #1

security permissions

I wish to be able to make files inside a particular folder, and that once a file is created it can't be deleted.

So I right clicked to that folder, Properties, Security tab, Advanced, Change Permissions, Add (my user name - "boris"), and then I edited permissions, where I denied DELETE and DELETE SUBFOLDERS AND FILES.

But it didn't come as I wanted since I can only create new fiels inside that folder, but I can't named them. So if I make new text document I can't name it as I wanted also I can't renamed it after it was created. However deleting is denied as I wanted.

I need this because I have some excel macro that creates pdf document inside that folder and I don't want that documents to be deleted or changed by mistake.

Please advice..

macro automaticaly makes files as readonly, but that doesn't prevent it from deleting
