[ILUG] Samba Query

We use Samba as our domain controller. Someone recently did something
silly, and accidentally dragged an entire directory into another
directory without noticing, thus "losing" it. He claims that he has
worked on systems in the past which allowed creation and modification of
a file, but not deletion. Now, to me this sounds a little silly. If you
can modify a file, then you can truncate it to zero bytes, making
inability to delete somewhat of a moot point. Nonetheless, I suppose it
would make it harder for people to do stupid things.
Does such a feature exist in Samba, and if not, can someone at least
tell me it doesn't exist in windows either such that I can refute his claim.
Thanks in advance,
