Deny users the right to delete folders/subfolders



I have a windows 2000 SBS server. I wish to deny users the right to delete
folders/files and subfolders/subfiles from a network drive. I have given the
group 'everyone' access to just read and execute, list folder contents, read
and write permissions but it does not allow them to 'save as' - they get an
error saying the folder is 'read-only' Any one have any ideas?

Have you checked the share permissions? If they haven't got write access
there then they'll not be able to write irrespective of what the
security permissions are.

Please in the future consider using cross posting when and where
it is appropriate, by naming multiple newsgroups in one posting,
rather than multiple posts. With cross posting there is one thread
seen in each of the named newsgroups, so all responses are shared.
It is much easier for you and everyone else.
