I've got a question about file permission in Windows.
I'd like to have a folder in which I have some pictures and the user should not be allowed to modify this file. The pictures cannot be deleted nor can anybody copy anything from another file to that specific file. They do have to be capable of copying pictures to other files though. How do I do this? I've looked under the security tab and I've gone though file permissions like read only, but none of them seems to fit my needs.
Read only at the directory level should work - but you have to assign those permissions to a user as well as the directory- and then have the person login as that user.
If you're testing it logged in as you and you have admin rights you're not really testing it in the real world.
Alternatively you could mount them as a web share.
