Block from moving folders

By avasile ·
i was wonder if anyone knows a way to block users moving the top level folders whithin a drive. they should be able to create folders / files whithin a top folder but not move the top folders.
I have windows SBS 2003.
I already try ACLs but couldn't find the right combination.
Thank you,
Adrian

I hope this is the same in SBS. But if you go to the advanced tab in the security properties of a folder you should be able to remove the "delete" permission on then select "this folder only". That should prohinit your users from moving the folder (which in effect is a delete)

It worked. Thank you.
One more thing please: how about for when I need to allow a user to modify a file - the content of the file but not let him delete the file itself?
Thank you

An answer for your second question...
click the file to be restricted. right click/ properties/security/advanced. then either edit the user or add the user/group and check the deny attribute for the delete permission.

Did that already and indeed the user can modify (and not allowed to delete) the file but when it saves the file afer you modify it, there will be another file (no extension or anything) showing up. As soon as I remove that restriction the file doesn't appear.
Weird ?

From what I understand, MS office documents are actually deleted then renamed when they are saved.

That means I have to find something else.
