- Subject: how to deny delete
I've noticed that on windows 7, even if we protect a folder by selecting
"delete - Deny" in permissions, cygwin doesn't care and it allows to
continue with rm. I think this is not good. I can think of other ways like
creating a lock file in my scripts but that wont be a clean way. Isn't there
any way that i can set some level of protection in NTFS without too much of
fuss. I need to write to files and folder underneath but only want to deny
delete permission on that top folder.
