I played with my permissions. But I don't think you have delete permissions
for Windows. Check using Effective Permissions in the Security Dialog (click
advanced a few time and you'll find it). If so then the editor may make a
difference. As there are no delete permission granted nothing can delete
files. Some editors edit files on disk using OLE or Virtual Memory tecniques
(like MSWord - but I don't know it works with text files this way, it does
with docs) - these should work because the same file stay in the same place
and only contents are changed and the file is not deleted. However Word
works on a copy of the file so has to delete the original to finalise the
save. Other editors overwrite the file, and others save to a temporary name,
if it works it then deletes the original and renames the temporary.
But you can't delete, take ownership, or change permissions.
