I manage a “WORK” folder that contains client files and I frequently modify the contents of its subfolders, “CLIENTXX”. Unfortunately, I often accidentally permanently delete items by using “SHIFT+DELETE” instead of sending them to the recycle bin. I’m seeking a solution to protect my “WORK” folder from accidental deletion while still allowing full access to its subfolders and files. I have attempted to make the contents “Read-Only”, but that doesn’t fully solve the problem as I still need to edit files in the client subfolders.
