    I am trying to set permissions on a folder to serve as a drop box on a network volume so that I retain full control and the <everyone> group can add files and read the contents, but cannot change anything once uyploaded to the folder.
    Or, listed a different way:

    administrator -- full control
    everyone-allow -- List folder / read data
    Create files / write data
    everyone-deny -- Delete subfolder and files

    The issue I am encountering is that since deny takes predence over allow, even administrator cannot delete files. How can I set permissions for the admin to delete while retaining the existing permissions for <everyone>?

    Thank you -Kellen
