I want to be able to upload a file into an article but without the ability to remove other files uploaded from other users to the same article.

Is it possible?

I tried the Field Permissions module; I can edit, but I cannot upload.

Try to add a second file field via the field UI; to set the permissions for a single field you could use hook_field_access().

  • Can you be more specific? I want the article to be like Dropbox, but without the ability to change other files I didn't upload.

  • you mean upload in the node-view, not the node-edit ?
