Server 2003 Files are being moved

Posted on 2007-08-02

We are currently running Server 2003, and we believe that a user is moving files.  Currently all users have Full access to folders as we need to be able to access each others information.  Is there a way to set a permission that people can't move folders to another location?

    Your best bet would be to explicitly Deny the delete permission for this particular user (or all users for that matter). The user would still be able to copy files/folders to a different location, but the originals would never be able to be moved.

    Not sure if that's sufficient for your needs?

    Accepted Solution

    If you give them Read, Read & Execute, and Write and remove Full Control and Modify they will be able to open files, update files, create new files and folders, copy files and folders, but not move or delete files or folders.
