    I have an office, and all our files run off the server. Recently, a bunch of
    files were moved from the appropriate folder to a completely different
    location. We restored a backup we had, and then we found the original files.
    We have no idea how they were moved or who did it.

    Assuming this was an accident, is there a way to password protect the files
    on the server, so that before you move something you have to confirm that
    it's okay?

    If not, are there any ways to make sure that files don't get moved around?

  2. Password protected? No - NTFS security is how you control permissions, as
    well as turning up auditing - and training users to be careful when they're
    clicking & dragging.
