File Delete Dialog

I've had many cases of accidental file and folder deletion the past months and every time I had to search and restore the files/folders from the backups.

Restricting the permissions on the directories didn't seem to be helpful so I did some research.

As it turns out, the dialog to confirm the deletion was not displaying.

I fired up Group Policy Management Console, opened the group policy object and navigated to:
User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Windows Components - Windows Explorer.

There's a setting there named Display confirmation dialog when deleting files. I set it to enabled and now users have to confirm when deleting a file or folder.
