Q

Locking down the folder structure on a shared network

I am trying to work out how to lock down the folder structure on a shared network. I would like to control (as the administrator) the folder structure (number of folders, subfolders and folder names etc) but allow the users (all non admin users) create, read, write access to the contents of the folders, ie. Word, Excel documents. I am trying to enforce a directory/folder structure in order to keep consistency but the users keep changing the folders and/or creating new folders.
You'll need to use the advanced settings on the Security tab to deny create folders and to allow create files for each group or individual user throughout the desired folder structure.
