Managing a user’s permissions

I'm trying to get more granular in users' permissions on a folder. How do I set up advanced permissions to allow users to update files and save under the original name but not create new ones? I want to prevent them from doing a "Save As..." on existing files. I have already denied them delete ability.

Hello,

Unfortunatley I can’t see a way to prevent a user from performing a ‘save as’of a file while still allowing write permissions. Write permission allows a user to create new files which the ‘save as’ function falls under.

Good luck!

    What platform are we talking about, and how static is your list of files? If it's a small list that won't change much on a windows system, give read only access to the folder, and then apply higher permissions to the individual files. (a similar approach could be taken for most platforms so long as you have a limited file list that doesn't change often if you have a bigger file list, or the files in the list change regularly, I can't think of an option that wouldn't involve some type of scripting. Hope I've alteast given you some ideas. Kevin
