I'm trying to implement a solution on our Windows 2008 file server to prevent users from being able to move root folders. What often happens is a user will inadvertently drag and drop a root folder into another one and it then "goes missing".
I tried to follow this solution:
But am having trouble implementing it. Does anyone have a step by step guide regarding the above solution or have a better way? The above link seems like an ideal solution, but I can't get the permissioning down properly.
The "placeholder" file needs read only for which group? How do I actually set the "read only"? Is that read only permission or attribute? Do I deny the rest for the group in question?
Now what about the actual directory which I want to prevent from being moved, what specific permissions do I apply to this?
This seems like such a simple thing to implement but so difficult. I'm curious to hear your expert suggestions on this solution or another.
