need to prevent a read only folder from being moved

hi, I have a windows 2003 server with a main data folder. in there is a folder called projects that is read only.
We had a user move the projects folder from the parent data folder to another location by mistake. I've been playing with the folder by setting it so the admin has writes only, yet the users can still drag it some where else.

how can i stop this from happening. when every thing else in the data folder is read/write

hello total123,

have you change the ntfs permissions on that folder and pushed those permissions through to all sub-folders and files? doing this should lock down the folder to be read only to all users except admins as you said?User generated image
