Drag and Drop Network Folders

Alright, I apologize my ignorance but I have a problem.  I have a mapped drive on our network called the H: drive.  It holds all of our job information, drawings, safety, education, and like data.  So what has happened before is that someone was browsing the drive and would click on the mouse accidentally dragging a folder into another folder.

I know that if you move within the same partition it MOVES the data, but if you do it across partitions it COPIES the data.

How can I prevent this from happening within the same mapped drive?  Permisions?

You can set the permissions by unchecking the write option from the security tab for all users of the system, if a user tries to paste a new file, it ll say, "ACCESS DENIED"

Right I had thought of that, I should have expanded more in my question, sorry about that.

But I have security groups by division Engineering, Electrical, Communications, Commercial, etc..  So if Engineering and Electrical need write ability for the folder and it is one of those individuals who 'accidentally' move the data, how do I prevent that?

If I am not mistaken Novell has the "Do not Delete" feature, I can only assume that windows does not.

You can find all the groups listed out under the security tab, in that list click on deny for that department whose individuals need to prevent accidental moving of data, is my solution clear or??

I can only say that no your solution is not clear.  I know where to find the groups under the security tab.

So you are telling me to "Deny" write access to the department who needs to be prevented.  Well if there is only one group granted access to a particular folder, then your solution won't work because they need to be able to write to the folder.

Or are you suggesting "Denying" access to wrtie for the possible target folders, i.e above or below the folder in question?

If that is the case, then ur question is inappropriate as far as I am concerned, coz u can only grant access or deny it, its not possible to deny drag and drop in a windows explorer coz its a windows shortcut to copy files, if u need to deny that then u r ultimately hacking the os....
