Windows 2003 SP2 Permissions on share

Hello Experts,

I have searched through Experts Exchange, and have been unable to find an answer to a question that I know must have been asked. In windows 2003 SP2 is it possible to do the following on a share.

In a share called test we will have approximate 10 folders that various departments work in. We do not wish for the users to have the ability to create any new files and folders at the test level. We also do not wish them to be able to delete, rename or move any of the 10 folders in the test share. In the 10 folders users will have the ability to create new files and folders, modify and delete. We do not wish to make several shares to accomplish this. Many of the folders have files that are linked and need to retain the proper drive mapping to function properly after the migration to this new server. I have further questions in regards to security in the 10 folders but wish to split this up in a few questions. It only seems fair to split up the points!!!

Thank You,

Wendell

have you tried setting your permissions for the test folder , then remove the inheritance from the sub folders and give them different permissions ?

Smart Man,

Yes I have, but I am obviously missing something. I have already been successful not allowing the user to create, rename or delete a folder. I am most likely not explaining what I would like to accomplish. After I set the permissions on the sub folders I can pretty much do what I need. But if I drag and drop one of the subfolders over another folder in the testing share, it will still create a folder in the other directory, move all the data and then give an error that it can not remove the directory. The same goes for delete. If I try and delete one of the folders, I will get an error that it can not delete the folder, but everthing inside is gone.  If it is the proper term I want to anchor the directories. I do not want these directories moved by mistake (or intentionally). If someone clicks delete on the main folder, I was hoping it would just give an error and that is as far as it would go.

Thank you,

Wendell
then for test and sub no permissions for the let us say folder1 subs they are allowed. create like subfolder1 which have all what should be in folder1 and do not inherent folder1. deny is stronger than allow. + incoherence :)

wope i am miles off

Smart Man,
Thank You for your comments. From further reading and searches on Experts Exchange that no one has come up with a solution for what I wish to accomplish.

Thank you,
