Hi

We are setting up anew policy to restict users in a certain group folder in ADS Called Network users Policy on a MS server 2003.

Is it possible to restrict users ability to move/rename and delete files and folders via ADS on the server?  If so what steps do we need to take.

Many thanks.

You just need to setup folder permissions.  ADS is only going to hide or show certain folders.

Also keep in mine that some programs delete the original file before saving the new copy they are working on.  So if you have delete denied but modify allowed some applications will still not work.

Have you tried with

Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> File System

add there drive/folder/file and set up appropriate permissions and link that GPO to approrpiate computers OU. But remember that you have to be sure that other applications doesn't require read or write/modify permissions on a regular user account to work properly.

Regards,
Krzysztof
