Document Folder Access Setting



I have created a new folder in Documents tab with Public Folder Access set as Read Only and made the folder is accessible by all users. I was hoping that with these settings, basic users will not be able to create, delete or modify the documents, but they were able to. After looking through the basic user's profile, I found that the Standard Object Permissions on documents are set as Read, Create, Edit, Delete, View All, Modify All. Is this the reason as to why basic users have read/write access to my document folder though it's been set to Read Only. Is there any way to make this folder read only? Thanks. 


You can modify the contents of a folder only if the folder access level is set to Read/Write. Only users with the “Manage Public Documents” or “Manage Public Templates” can delete or change a Read Only folder. Regardless of permissions or folder settings, users can't edit any unfiled or personal folders.
