NTFS Permissions: How to prevent folder moves
Posted on 2009-04-03
Structure looks like this:
Share: \\server\shared Domain users have "list folder" permission, this folder only.
Beneath this "Shared" directory are multiple individual directories for departments (Marketing, Accounting, etc.). The appropriate groups have NTFS modify permissions on their individual department folder.
In some cases, a user will correctly have rights to more than one department so they can access both the Marketing and Accounting folders. Some users get "click happy" and accidentally drag their entire Marketing folder into the Accounting folder for example.
Is there a way I can protect these "parent" Marketing and Accounting folders so that the folder itself cannot be moved (or deleted), but still allow the users to have full control to the files within?
