My problem relates to users being able to move directories into others accidentally.  Because of the drag and drop feature in xp, users often accidentally drag a  directory into another when trying to open one. We are running Windows Storage Server 2003, and we have a mapped share that contains directories for all of our projects (hundreds), we've removed users permissions to write to the root of the share, but they need write access to the project directories.  I played with permissions once and got it so the original location didnt delete, but the copy happened first so still was a problem.

Any suggestions appreciated
