Read and write to a folder but not move it

We have a Server 2008 R2 file server used by everyone in the organization.  All share folders are using NTFS and group permissions, along with access based enumeration to govern folder access.  I have the groups set up with "Modify" rights to each departments folders.  We have a few departments who have bad habits of moving large folders and then losing them or forgetting where they are, etc...(typical user stuff).  At any rate, this may sound like a dumb question and I hope its not, but what specific permission set would be needed to allow read and write, but not move?  Should I turn off modify and just check read and write?  Do I need to go to advanced settings and create a custom permission set?

With the basic NTFS permissions screen, there isn't a way to fix the problem you're dealing with. You have to use the Advanced permissions screen to do some more fine grained permissions modifications. http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-6084446.html has some more specific definitions of what each permission level does, and you'll likely need to do some testing and experimentation to get it working properly. Removing the Create Folders permission will likely help, but you may also want to limit the ability of users to Delete objects specifically. The average user probably shouldn't have the right to delete files in your shares, and that should be limited to Department heads or other administrative staff as determined by your company policy (if you don't have a company policy on who is allowed to delete files, consider writing one up :D). At any rate, pulling the delete permission from users will result in users being blocked from performing a Move operation, because a move implies a delete.
