How do I prevent files in the team folders from being accidentally delted by users?

Re: Team Folder Lockdown

Hi there, this won’t be possible if the users have edit access to the team folder.
Edit access means users can add, edit and delete files and folders if need be. There isn’t a way to prevent them from deleting files.
Currently, you can prevent users from permanently deleting files, so you can enable that setting to be able to restore the files later, and ensure they don’t permanently delete the files.
Hope this helps to clarify matters!
