Weird Behaviour of files in a Folder - When Open the Sharepoint site folder using windows explorer option RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    We have a sharepoint site where we have few folders.

    Users have only Read Access on all of these folders. They can't delete any files if they try to delete from sharepoint site.

    However when they open the site using Windows Explorer option, they can delete the file. What's more interesting is when they refresh that Windows Explorer Window then that file re-appears.

    That means, in reality they are not able to delete the file from the folder even if they try deleting it using Windows Explore option. However its kinda bluffing the people that it has deleted the file.

    Users want a prompt that says they don't have access when they try to delete the file from that folder using Windows Explorer option.

    Is there any way for it?
