NTFS stop folders being moved
Posted on 2010-04-22
We have a list of folders on a network share. e.g.
I want users to be able to view everything, but should only be able to edit files WITHIN the S00* file.
The S00* folders are created programatically in c#, so I can apply permissions to each folder when they are created.
So far, i've set advanced permissions for them to allow editing/deleting of files within the job folder.. Applied to "Subfolders and Files Only". This works ok for most things, but when a user accidentally drags one job folder into another, it will move the folder and contents to the other destination, and keep the empty folder that was dragged after displaying the error msg.
So if i accidentally drag S001 into S002, we end up with.
J:\Standard Jobs\S001 <-- empty
Anyone faced this challenge before?
