    Hello All:

    I am using Vista Home Basic. I have set security settings of my partition D as "Full Control" EXCEPT "deny" checkbox checked for "Delete Subfolders and files" and "Delete" so nobody can accidentally delete files. These permissions are set for the user "Authenticated User" and there are no other permissions inherited or any other users granted any permissions.

    My problem is that when I need to delete multiple files, I have to change permissions of each file separately to allow deletion of them OR I have to change permission of the entire D drive for deletion and set it back to original as above.

    Selecting only the interested files and changing their permissions collectively is not possible.

    Is there any way I can do this?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
