    Surely they would need read permissions?

    they have inherited that's just the deny permissions (just the way windows 8.1/svr 2012 shows them) these are additional permissions as well as their normal ones

    I think I dont understand which folder you are talking about
    Start from the top
    What do I need to change on folder 1 to stop children moving it?
    Having done that - what do I need to do to allow children to read write,move and delete on folders 2 and 3 INSIDE folder 1?

    assuming you structure is something like the below

    share
    ------folder(must not be moved)
    ------------------------------------stuff they can do what they want with

    on folder(must not be moved) you want to go to permissions advanced and add user group (pupils in my example) then select deny (AND ONLY STUFF THEY CANT DO SO LEAVE read etc blank) create file/create folders/delete) and make sure at the top it says this folder only

  8. Thanks to sted from:

    I know this is a completely different solution to what you are looking at ... but the only school I have where this does not happen accidentally from time to time, is one where all the children have individual logins (apart from the reception class) which then maps to their own folder on the server - "My documents" redirects there as well. Otherwise, with the sensitivity of touchpads on laptops and netbooks, some folders inevitably seem to end up getting moved around!

    I have suggested invidual logins but they arent keen. Also, this issue isnt even happening on the class logon - but on some random folder the class has put on the shared resources!!

    If you've got PowerShell then you could try this:

    Set up the 'root' folder with the permissions you want.

    Set up one subfolder manually with the permissions you want.

    Run the following in PowerShell:

    Code:
    $acl = Get-Acl -Path C:\rootfolder\subfolder
    
    foreach ($subfolder in (Get-ChildItem -Path C:\rootfolder -Recurse | Where {$_.PSIsContainer})){
        Set-Acl -Path $subfolder.FullName -AclObject $acl
    }
    That'll set all the subfolder permissions (for all subfolders, not just the first layer) to match the one you set manually. If you only want to affect the first layer, take out the -Recurse from Get-ChildItem.

    That depends if you want the permisions from the folder above your 'folder 1' to be on folder 1 (Usually inherited from the root of your partition). Unticking it gives you a blank canvas for your permissions. When I'm doing custom rights on special shared areas like this i normally disable inheritance.
