Hello,

I created a folder on a network shared drive. I created a group to have sole access to this folder other than admin. What I am trying to do is set the permissions up so that the members of this group can modify, create, or delete any file or folder inside of this folder, but not be able to delete or move the parent folder that I created. The parent folder I created doesn't inherit any permissions. I have succeeded in keeping them from deleting the parent folder, but when I have them try and move the parent folder it remains where it is and a copy of the parent folder and it's contents are moved to the selected location. The contents of the original parent folder move with the copy and are no longer found in the original. Any ideas on how I can reach my objective?

There is no way using standard share and NTFS permissions to keep a user that has access to a folder from copying it. I have seen some stuff about another MS product called Windows Rights Management Services which might be of interest to you but I don't think that will solve what you are trying to do either.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

That's kinda what I thought. I was hoping someone might come up with a solution that I didn't know about. I guess it didn't hurt to ask. Thank you.
