Third Party tools to edit Word Documents with a Deny Delete Permission RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a folder that is being shared by several standard users on my Windows 7 PC, I would like to add a restrictions where the standard users cannot delete the folder and sub-folders & documents but they can Read & Write on the documents.

    I have Allow Read & Write on the folder and sub-folders & documents but Deny Delete & Delete sub folders. It work fine, I cannot delete the folders and sub documents but I cannot Edit my documents saved on Ms-Excel & MS Word 2010 but I can edit documents in Notepad & PDF.

    I've learn fromblogs and forums that words & excel create a temporary files when editing is being done and while saving the temporary word doc is deleted. But with a deny delete permission, word cannot delete nor save the document.

    My Questions is, whether there is a third party tools that can make the editing of words documents with a Deny delete permission???
