I have a database on a Network drive where I work. I am the "owner" of the drive and the subfolders so can change permissions. It seems that even if I set the permissions to modify rather than "full" the user can still delete it. I have tried setting the permission in "advanced" settings to not allow "delete" but the file can still be deleted if it can be changed it seems How do I set the permissions to allow people to put data into the database but stop anyone accidnetally deleting the file?

Thanks in advance

Have you set the files to Read Only?

ya, that way they should be able to DL the file, modify it on their computer, and copy it (providing they have permission) back to the remote location

I just thought of this but if you set the permissions and stuff but you log in as an admin to test it out wouldn't you have full acess...

You never know sometimes it's the silliest things that make genious confused...

If I set the file to read-only then wouldn't this prevent users modifying the database. The idea is to have a database of patients that can be accessed and updated by many users

But you don't want them to delete them?? Well one idea that I can think of is if you make a backup of the drive so even if someone deletes something you still have a copy somewhere else...
