Upload directory with unwanted files

We have a structure under the upload directory where editors are supposed to upload files. Too often, editors store files in the root upload directory by mistake. We want to give editors write-rights only to upload-subdirectories, not to the upload directory itself. How do we do that in EPi 4.31? Is the problem easily solved in EPi 4.50?

This might solve your problem: http://www.episerver.no/downloads/Documents/TechNotes/EPiServer%204.41/Configuring%20the%20File%20System.pdf We experienced the same problem and implemented this but we had to remove it because working in the file directory for the user became extremely slow. If anyone have a "workaround" to this problem I would like to hear about it.

We had the same experience and solved it by setting restricting the ability to create files in the root directory: At the upload directory set these permissions: Users: Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Read The add these special permissions to Users: -Apply onto: This folder only Create Folder/Append Data Delete Subfolders and Files -Apply onto: Subfolders and files only Create Files / Write Data Create Folders / Append Data Write Attributes Write Extended Attributes Delete Subfolders and Files Delete This will cause an error when trying to upload to the root, maybe not so very user friendly but it keepes the root 'clean' :) /lp /lp
