Does anyone know of a software that could be helpful in maintaining
permissions on a Windows 2003 server?  I have tried Universal Shield which is
able to take a file mask such as C:\subfolder\*\*\  and modify some very
simple permissions, but it doesn't work out for my network.  It's not
flexible enough.  Really what I'm looking to do is the following:

P:\subfolder  -- No changes can be made to any subfolders within this folder
P:\Subfolder\subfolder -- These subfolders can be changed, but can't be moved
P:\subfolder\subfolder\subfolder -- No changes can be made to any subfolders
within this folder
P:\subfolder\subfolder\subfolder\subfolder --These subfolders can be
changed, but can't be moved

I am able to do the first 2, but there are so many subfolders in the second
2 that the maintnance appears to be a problem.  Let me know if you know of
any suitable apps, that can do this.
