I need users to be able to write files in a folder (which they cannot delete) and they cannot delete files from another users - only their own. the folder and the list items of others you want to prevent deletion of, but you want users to be able to delete their own list items?How to set permission level.please help me.Thanks in advance,

Hi VM,

That is not possible in a library, only in a list. There you can configure the option "Only edit their own items".

The only solution you can use is a custom workflow. When an item is added to the library, you can have that workflow change the permissions of the document.
