I would like to prevent the renaming of the "Photos" folder (see example
below) by network users but allow full access (ie: read, write, delete,
create, rename....) to the rest of files and folders, including the files and
folders located in the "Photos" folder:

Example......(using Windows 2000 Server)
F:\DATA contains miscellaneous data files and the following folders

Application Data
Documents
Photos

When in the NTFS permissions dialog you would grant
List for the folder, and grant modify on the content of the
folder. To do this, first grant modify and then use the
Advanced button to access the detail view where you
would highlight the modify and alter it so that it applies
to Subfolders and files instead of the default of This
folder, subfolders and files.
After that special grant has been defined, accept so that
you are back at the generic permissions dialog and check
List to grant the ability to use the parent directory.
