is there a way to ristrict user when creating new folder on shared folder name i.e WorkOrders, to have them create new folder but work order number only that starts with WO_XXX  "xxx being only numbers".  i don't want the users to create anyother folder name.  so what i like to do is when the click new folder then a message will come up and tell them what kind of folder name they should create and if the folder name doesn't start with WO_ then if will not allow them to create a new folder.

    The simple answer is No. There are no policies that you can set to restrict folders in this way and if any scripting solution were possible, and I don't think it is, it would need to be very complex.
