Deleting Network Files

Question: How do I stop kids from deleting network files?

The IT Guy says:
Assignment of network rights is the key for keeping students from deleting files. Students should not have any more network rights than they need, but these needs vary by grade level. In the most restrictive environment, students only have file saving rights to their own, personal network folder. You can use "Read-only" template folders so students can access project templates and hotlists but not delete or change them. For more detail on these ideas, see my September 2003 article in Technology & Learning on Network Security Issues: A Primer.
