Prevent Users From Moving Folders and Files
Posted on 2006-05-26
I am using Win 2003 Server and have a share that I would like to prevent users from moving folders and files. I have a folder shared as a mapped drive F: At the root level is a folder named Docs. Inside this folder are project folders for jobs based on job numbers, named as 01-100, 01-101, etc. I need all domain users to be able to write files and folders and be able to modify and delete them in these job folders, but not in the Docs folder and at the root level of the share. Here they only need read access. The share has sharing permissions set to Everyone Full control. The root level of the share has the security set for Read and Execute for Domain Users. The Docs folder has permissions set to read and execute for Domain Users and has Special Permissions on the Docs folder for Domain Users set to Write - Subfolders and Files Only. Now by doing this I do understand that they will not be able to delete in the job folders, but they should be able to write and append data to files. What is happenning is that users can read all data, but some users, not all, are getting Access Denied errors when they try to save Word documents of files that they do not own. The only way that I have been able to coreect this is give them Modify permissions on the job folders, but this lets them move them, Any insight on setting these folders would be apprecitaed.
