    Prevent users from moving folders ?

    I have a problem in a primary school where year 3 children keep dragging folders into one another.

    I need to give the children write/delete/modify access within the folders but I dont want them to be able to move the main root folders.

    Children log on with a year3 login name and can see all their classes folders, they just save to their name.

    I know i could setup individual login names for each child but the school does not want to go down that route so im stuck.

    Anyone know what combination of NTFS permissions or AD will help me out ?

    Server = 2000
    Clients = 2000/XP

    Thanks
