Stop Users Moving\Deleting Folders Server 2003

Specs: Server 2003

Hi All,

We have 5 login accounts for each of the years at my school and we want to be able to stop the kids from moving and deleting folders on the network. Can anyone help, with the file\folder level permissions to stop this happening?

We have a Windows Server 2003 DC and mainly XP and some Win7 clients.

Your help is greatly appreciated

Do you not have a network administrator to take care of these kinds of tasks?

If not, you should have. It's worth noting you could hire a qualified professional consultant on an "as needed" basis to come in and do stuff like this for you. In fact, I highly recommend you do so if you don't have someone in a permanent position doing so already and/or can't afford it.

In a nutshell, you would handle this through permissions. Either by group, or individual user.

I have a feeling though my answer won't help you much and you're going to ask for a detailed explanation on how to achieve this through user/group perm's and I'm not going to try to do that with someone who doesn't speak the language or have at least a basic working knowledge of MS AD domain administration.

I highly recommend you hire a qualified professional to help you out.

Imagine my surprise at your response. Apparently I didn't speak clearly enough so let me try one last time.

No.

I'm not going to give you detailed step-by-step instructions.

If you knew anything about AD and managing users, groups and their associated permissions you wouldn't be asking this question in the first place as you would know what to do.

Secondly, we're not here to do the work for you. I've given you all the information you need now it's up to you to do the required research and reading to figure out the best way to do it for your domain. Or, take my advice, admit you're in over your head and hire someone to do it for you.

Thirdly, I couldn't give a detailed explanation even if I wanted to because I know nothing about the setup of your domain....both physical and logical.....and that information is required to do the job correctly.

So, you have two choices. Hire a qualified professional to do it for you (my recommendation) or go, do the research, learn what you need to in order to do it yourself.

FWIW, I'm not trying to be rude. We're here to help people, not do the work for them. I've been here before with other people like you and have tried to help them. It ends up with a pile of back and forth here and then they want to go to email (I won't) or talk on the phone (Sure, if you pay my $2,500.00 consulting fee up front and my hourly rate $250.00/hour while we're talking) and I still can't fully help them because they don't know enough to do the job even with a detailed explanation. In the end, they end up screwing things up completely and end up in worse shape than they started in. Ergo my recommendation to hire a qualified professional.

If you'd like, you can hire me to come to your place of business and do this for you but I live in western Canada and I'm betting you don't so my expenses would be very high as compared to you hiring someone localy.
