We have a win2k netowrk environment. Domain, AD etc etc.
I have a personal folder that I can create files and folders in.
One ofthe folders that I have created I would like to have set up so that I have read write acess to it as well as being able to create and delete sub directories.
HOWEVER i would like to try and have this folder set (either by me or the network admin) so that i cannot move the top level folder (I.E cut and paste it some where else.)
Is this possible?

There might be a setting in windows advanced security settings on the folder, but apart from that I don't think it would be possible.

Off the top of my head, I don't think there is such a setting on my system but yours is definately configured differently so you could have a look (or get admin to have a look for you) and find out. ;-)
