Windows 7: List but not read permission

Windows 7 x64 SP1
List but not read permission

Hello, So I need to assign my permissions so that a user group can copy files into a shared folder, can only see the names of the files, but can`t open or edit any of the files in that folder, basically it should be able to list and write files but any reading whatsoever should be denied. Since list and read options are together and can`t be seperated in Windows 7, I can`t figure out a way to do this, any ideas?

The NTFS permissions under the Security tab of the Properties sheet should allow for List-only, and they will take precedence over any more lax Sharing permissions.

Yeah, I figured it out, the problem was that the permissions were grayed out and couldnt be changed the way I wanted, but I did it in the end :)
