Default ubuntu-users Digest, Vol 64, Issue 157

You have to set the "sticky" bit of the directory:

chmod 1777 ~/stored

That way only the owner of the directory and root can delete the files inside.
Each and every other user can create new files (because they have write
permission to the directory). Each file is modificable according to its own
mode (the fact that a file is "read-only" or "read-write" depends on its own
permissions, not on the directory).



Hello again

I tried what you've said even did chmod -R but still no luck.
it gives permission to write and delete to everyone.
This is what i get: http://img35.imageshack.us/i/13822852.jpg/
If you have any other suggestions please type back. Or if i did something wrong
please feel free to correct me
Thanks again.
