Here's my problem. On one of our mapped drives we have about 100 different "top-level" folders(for that share). Apparently people are accidentally dragging and dropping entire folders into each other. It doesn't happen everyday, but the Dept Manager would like to make it so that only a few people can Create, Delete, etc these "top-level" folders but still allow everyone else access to folder/files under them. What would be the best way to adjust the permissions to make this happen? Thanks in advance File Server OS: Windows 2003 SP1 PC OS: Windows XP Pro SP2

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

NTFS Permissions are pretty cool when it comes to stuff like this. Basically you go into advanced and say for example you set up a group called generalusers that are not allowed to create the folders in that top level. You add them to the advanced list with the subfolders only class with standard read/write EXCEPT delete (make it unchecked) (so they can’t delete that folder). Then you add the same group again with folders and files and set to read only.
