    Lock Folder Additions

    In our active directory structure we have a folder called Shared, with sub folders holding data such as forms, logos, drawings etc. This is done so all company wide data is available from one desktop folder.
    How can I "lock" this directory so non administrators cannot add sub folders, as I am finding that new folders are being created for the wrong reasons.

    A user with administrative rights should right click on the folders and select 'Properties'. Then, click on the 'Security' tab. Then, click on the 'Advanced' button. Then, select the user or group of users for which you wish to change the permission. Click on 'Edit'. Check or un-check what you wish. Then 'OK' your way out.

    HTH,

    OK Thanks. Had experimented along those lines but got spooked by the option of Creat Folders/ Append Data. I will have to test this as I wish to stop folder creation but allow additional files to be added to existing folders (eg logos)
