I am trying to set folder & file "Restricted_Users" group permission on Shared-Folder as below:

  • Can Access/View folder(s) Shared-Folder, Sub-Folder(s) and Sub-folder ....(n)
  • Can't Add/Update/Delete folder(s) Shared-Folder, Sub-Folder(s) and Sub-folder ....(n)
  • Full Control (View/Add/Update/Delete) on file(s) contained in folder(s) Sub-Folder(s) and Sub-folder ....(n)

I have created permission as below but the file can't be updated in the shared folder by the restricted user group.

What am I doing wrong with permission? Hope for your kindly suggestion.

Current Permission Current Permission

Access is denied while file update Access is denied while file update

  • As you can see by the permissions you set "append data" is not permitted. Straight up overwriting the file should be. – Seth Sep 6 '17 at 10:43
  • @Seth if i set "append data" permission, user can add folder too. – Mars Sep 6 '17 at 10:50
  • Yes, because you apply it to this folder, subfolders and files. If you select folders and files it should only count for items within that folder. – Seth Sep 6 '17 at 11:55

Chatting reference with @ramhound and @Seth i got solutions for my query.

After splitting permission This folder subfolders and file into This folder and subfolders and Files only.

I set following permission for This folder and subfolders

  • Traverse folder / execute file
  • List folder / read data
  • Read attributes
  • Read extended attributes
  • Create file and write data
  • Write attributes
  • Write extended attributes
  • Read permission

Folder & File

and Full control for Files only

Files only
