Windows 7: Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups

Hello Takichiro,

Sorry, but no. It would only disable the users ability to access/open the file instead. Hopefully you'll get a solution in your original thread soon.

OK. So I won't do it this way. You saved time to me! Thank you!

- I am administrators user
- I completely disable the UAC
- My drive is NTFS
with those conditions, is it possible to make a file undeletable but still accessible?

Hello eterNEETy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

An administrator will always be able to delete a file.

Disabling UAC will only stop the UAC prompt to approve anything that requires elevated rights. This will let an administrator perform elevated rights without the UAC prompt.

Then, can I make a file like "%windir%\Web\Wallpaper\Windows\img0.jpg"?
without take ownership, it's exactly a file that I want (undeletable but accessible)
I have tried several ways of icacls but it make the files become undeletable & inaccessible

That would be a system file, and an administrator can still be able to delete it after jumping through hoops to do so.

I'm hoping someone can clear an issue for me; the solution could be posted within this tutorial but I don't know which method I should follow.

A sub-folder which I'm sharing is accessible by another computer, although I can't read the contents of the sub-folder neither can I write to the sub-folder. Although I don't want to write to the sub-folder I strictly want to only read the contents of the sub-folder. When I attempt to access the sub-folder by another computer on the network, I'm prompt that I don't have the correct permissions ?

The parent folder of the sub-folder must have R/W access but the specific sub-folder mentioned should only have read permissions.

The owner of the network share will need to set "Share with" to whom they want to have "read" access to the folder and/or files.

I'm using work groups; therefore the Share with, context menu only lists advanced sharing. The Security tab shows two users, although no groups. Those two users is the current user logged into Windows and the administrator; although the tutorial you linked to seems to be directed towards when using home groups ?

Is it possible to assign a user to strictly the sub-folder and be prompt for the assigned user to the sub-folder when wanting to strictly read the contents of the sub-folder ?

You should be able to set up "advanced sharing" -> "Permissions" -> "Add" -> selecting the workgroup in "Locations", then set the permissions you want for the user.
