And still allow read/Write to the disk? Having users accidentally click on disk names, blanking them or causing the name to change is a little frustrating - eg. like looking for network volume names that aren't anymore...

It's just so easy for clumsy clickers to mash the the disk name and change it...

    enter the following in terminal

    *sudo chmod +a "everyone deny delete" /Volumes/"Diskname"*

    put the name of the disk in question instead of Diskname in the above.

    You'll have to enter your admin password (which you won't see). That's normal.

    To reverse the process, enter

    *sudo chmod -a "everyone deny delete" /Volumes/"Diskname"*

    oops, strike that. it works on folders but doesn't seem to work on disks.
