Restrict Delete in Explorer view

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I have setup a custom permission level (copy of contribute except delete permission) on document libary to restrict delete documents. However, it looks like the user still can delete from Windows Explorer view. Restrict/hide Explorer view is not an option here since users heavily use Explorer view. I cannot use SharePoint Designer on the production site since it's locked for everyone. I didn't find a clear solution on the web, hoping someone could have resolved this already. What are my options?

Can not copy: The file exists. (Explorer View)

Hello Community,               I used to copy bunch of files from windows explorer to sharepoint 2007 document library in its explorer view. But now I could not. It gives me error "Can not copy xyz: The file exists". The files does not exists already.             I also created many different new files [Different Name/Different File Type] and copy to server but still no luck. I have logged in to SharePoint with Admin Account and verified that no such file already exists.             I have the many machines and using Windows XP and Windows 7. For Windows 7 I never found the problem and Windows XP [with IE 6] if I use normal user for windows logon [Normal user have the “Full Control” permission in SP] I cannot use drag and drop files. It shows the error message “Cannot copy file <filename> The file exists”. For “My Network Places” I created and point to document libraries such as http://serversite/Docs [“Docs” It’s a document libraries list] but no luck. I tried from multiple Windows XP workstations and It works in few but cannot make out any differences between these machines.          &n

Can't view the SharePoint Site. Explorer won't take domain account

Hi, I'm having issues viewing the SharePoint 2010 Site that I have deployed from any workstation. It seems that my permissions settings have broken - even though I haven't touched them. Whenever http://start/ is visited (the Intranet top site) it asks for credentials. They should have been taken from the User that was logged onto the machine. E.g. NATWIDE\UserA. After entering the credentials, it doesn't accept them, and asks for them again. And again. And then blank page. I'm not receiving the SharePoint "restricted access" page... HOWEVER, when I log into the website via Mozilla Firefox - it appears that the credentials are fine, and it works according to the permissions set for the site from within SharePoint. Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening. I'm completely stumped and I can't find a similar issue anywhere else. I have installed a Stand-alone installation of SharePoint 2010 Server Enterprise on Server 2008. The account that installed the SharePoint server and is a FARM Administrator, can't even log in to view the page. Cheers, Stu.

Windows explorer view doesn't work on Windows 7

We are running Office SharePoint 2007 with SP2 on windows 2003 server. All windows 7 with IE 8 gets this message: " Please wait while Explorer View is loaded. If Explorer View does not appear, your browser may not support it". when click Windows Explorer in View. All Vista and XP work fine. I have tried these: 1. Added the SharePoint site on a Trusted Site. 2. Web Client is set to Automatically start, and that it is started. 3. We have Office 2003 installed on all computers. 4. We also tried to enable Comtability View.

How to properly configure permissions so users can view, add, edit, and delete list items, but not w

I am trying to figure out how to properly setup security so that it can be configured at the top-level, and then inherited all the way through. Here is what I would like to do: Each user can view, add, edit, and delete list items - but, users cannot modify or delete web part pages. The only way I know how to do this is set Contribute from the top-down, and then go into each Site Pages library and set Read access. The problem is that I have 100 sites, and I was hoping there was a way I could set security at the top, and inherit downward. Rather than having to go into all 100 Site Pages library and set Read access. Is there a way to do this? Thanks in advance.

Explorer view losing folder path information

Hi all, I am writing a custom webpart to replace SP's default ListWebPart in my document library view page. But I found it can't keep the folder information when showing the "Explorer View". For example, I enter a subfolder "root/folder 1" and select "Explorer View" in  ViewToolbar, it returns the root folders content. But when I click the "Open in Windows Explorer" in ActionMenu, it returns contents of folder 1. I see the Sharepoint's ListViewWebpart does not have this problem. It can return correct contents when I enter a sub folder and click "Explorer View". The page's url contains correnct query strings about folder path (in my own webpart the query string is missing). Is it because I forget some config for the toolbar since I add it via codes? Below is my code to add the toolbar:   SPView view = this.CurrentView; if (view == null) return null; this._toolbar = new ViewToolBar(); this._toolbar.ID = this.ID + "_ViewToolBar"; this._toolbar.RenderContext = SPContext.Current; if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(view.ToolbarTemplateName)) { this._toolbar.TemplateName = view.ToolbarTemplateName; } return this._toolbar;   Thanks a lot.
