I have a sharepoint folder that I want to protect from being deleted. The folders within change so users need to be able to read write within the folder.


I have used ACLs at the custom level and removed ability to delete the parent folder. However, when I attempt to delete the parent folder to test, a dialogue window comes up to tell me I do not have permissions to delete, and when I ok that window, the contents of the parent folder gets deleted.


Try as I might I have been unable to  find the write combo of permissions to prevent the contents being deleted with the parent protected from deletion.


Any suggestions would be most welcome!
