Can A Folder Be Restricted To Copy Only For Employees

When we moved our files to ShareFile, there is one folder that has all the folders and files.  The intent is to organize the folders and files moving forward so that all folders and files that have to do with a single subject are filed in that folder.  

Because of habits, employees want to file new item anywhere in that large folder.  I would like an employee to have the rights to copy the items to a folder in the new architecture but not be able to save anything there.

So, can the folder be restricted to copy only?

Hi John,

You can't copy to a folder if you do not have upload permissions on a folder.  Unfortunately, copy cannot be segregated from the upload permission, so if you want to give them upload permissions to folders but block copying, then the answer is no.
