Im not quite sure I understand your problem.
You have some power users that have the right of power user on their OWN computers ? What does this have to do with the shares ?
Share permissions are something totally diferent.
Why would you give some normal users power users rights ? You can just give them administrative rights on their local machine and not on anything else.

Could you be a bit more clear in stating the problem ?

hi GeoSs

thank for coming back so fast to me .

here what I mean , when they setup the sbs 2003 server ,all users of this group (of people) where given power user right (down to the boss at that time and now Iam unable to change that as he's still here !)  some use could not update his Norton antivirus and so got a virus witch cost them money so the boss said give then all power user on the server so that is what the  IT people there did so........

All the user are domain power users and have only the right given by the server (ie no local user other that administrator & we dont want to give them that!) , so what I would like to do is take away there right to delete/move folder without changing there right to install software/update  on there own computers....

hope that explains..

Ok , I think I can understand that.
Then you can go on the shares and just set a DENY permission for power users to change whatever you don't want them to change.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
