Restricted users and temp files

By tventure ·
I have restricted the users on a 2003 server to not be able to delete files. The problem is whenever a user opens a document Microsoft Office opens a ~temp file for each opening which is not deleted when the document is closed because the user does not have that permission. I cannot find a fix for this. I thought someone here could put me on the right path. Thanks, jeff

Write a cleanup script and run it at the end of the day.

Thanks bwilmot,

I hope there was a better solution. I suppose this would work but seems a bit clunky.

should not show them the hidden temp files. An admin can set the view by type and not be bothered with the temp files. A simple script is straight forward and not a bit clunky. Especially since you don't want them deleting files. ;-)
