There seems to be a lot of half formed and incorrect explanations of how to properly set up permissions to prevent the deletion of a folder and all of its contents. Which is exactly what I am trying to do, so my question is: How can I prevent the deletion of a folder and all of its contents, in windows 10.
Some Background Research:
Here is an answer that claims that setting both the folder and its contents to
deny delete will solve the problem - Verified not Working
Here is another answer that claims that to prevent the deletion of files you must
deny write on the parent folder - Verified not Working
Now, I could try removing all other permissions. I could change Administrator and my user account and restrict them to simply reading and executing. But then, I am worried about how I would ever be able to change the file permissions after that. As theoretically that should "brick" the files and make changing their permissions impossible.
