how to restrict all the users from deleting the files in windows.
i want the permission to be reflect to all the users
is it through groups. if yes how plz tell me step wise
the users can have read and copy perms but not delete
plz help as soon as possible
The easiest way to set permissions is to do it via groups. It will depend if you in an Active Directory environment or just within a workgroup.
If in an AD evironment, you will be able to add the group you want to control and change the permissions. Otherwise, create the group locally, add the users you want the restrictions on to this group and edit the permissions as you want them.
To prevent users deleting the files go to security tab > advanced > permissons tab. From here you can select the group and then the permissions you want. From here you will be able to stop users deleting files.
Hope this helps you out. If you need more help, let me know.
