As the title suggests, I'm trying to lock the directory structure for a folder-hierarchy.
Multiple (W7) users access shared projects on a (QNAP) SMB NAS (ACL & Auth against AD). When new projects are created, a directory structure is copied from a template, and projects are (locked &) archived when done.
A problem that keeps occurring is that (more senior) staff tend to inadvertently drag & drop entire projects into each other - i.e. moving a mouse mid-drag&drop.
I've managed to use icacls prevent deletion of folders on the local disk, but this does not seem to be taking for folders on the NAS, nor does it actually prevent moving one folder into an adjacent one.
Is there a method (or tool) to lock the folder structure, so that folders cannot be moved or deleted by non-admins?
