How to enforce a delete admin pwd prompt request on multi-users sys?


I have a multi-users win7 (64bits) system, with one Administrator priviledge accounts, the others being non-admin.
Disk is partition with system on C and data on D and E.

All users can access to D and E.

How to enforce security properties so that delete file or folder on D or E must prompt for admin password? I see that I can totally prevent DELETE, but I just want to permit delete, when user successfully entered admin pwd on prompt.

If I right-click on D:
Then properties and view security tab, I see 4 groups:
* Authentified users
* System
* the admin account
* users (the admin account as user)

Remove the group named "Authenticated Users".

I would suggest that you test this on a test folder as a quick test to see if this does what you really want. If you do this to the root of a drive, you will not see the option "Include inheritable permissions...."

The user at the start of this video is an admin account named "username" (without a password). Once the standard user logs on, you will see the popup asking for that admin account password.
