JSI Tip 0457 - Can't create or rename a new object?

Explorer first creates the object with a default name and then must delete it during the rename. If the account does not have delete permissions, you receive an access denied message.

You can:

1. Add the Creator Owner user with delete permission to that directory. This gives the user the right to delete his or her own creations.

2. Run WINFILE, which doesn't use a default name when creating a file.
