I am using Rebex Buru SFTP Server.
User logins succesfully and has Read/Write (not Delete) permissions.
When user tries to rename folder server gives "Server Additional information: rename command failed".
FTP client is CoffeeCup FTP.

What i expect that user can rename and move files but cannot delete files.

Applies to: Rebex SFTP

Hello, which SFTP server do you use? Rebex Buru SFTP Server, or a custom .NET application implemented using File Server library?

Rename operation requires (among other permissions) "delete" on the source file. This is deliberate, not a bug.
