Prevent shared file to be deleted by other users
When sharing a file from OneDrive for Business, users with edit permission can delete the file. They can open the document, click the top left breadcrumb to access the user's OneDrive where they can delete the file. I understand that technically, sharing creates a sharepoint permission etc... However from a user point of view, this doesn't make sense. You don't share a document from your OneDrive in the intend to let other people delete it. In an O365 group I understand but from it's personal space ? I have already multiple cases of people deleting someone else file and it has never been on purpose. Some users simply don't understand what they do. At least a notification that someone deleted your file would help as it is easy to restore it. I explain the users why there files have been deleted but technicalities do not interest them, they want the tool to functionally work as they suppose it would.

An alert that something was deleted would be an appropriate stop gap solution, but I agree that having to restore a ton of files that shouldn't have been ABLE to be deleted in the first place isn't functionality that should exist.
Yea! that happend to me.
Just put a button to allow users to edit the files but not delete it... or at least show us who deleted the file... because it doesn't show, so the people delete it and we even don't know who did it...
lol this literally happened to us this morning, but with 97k files. Please please fix this.
Please provide this disable delete option for sharing files from One Drive
Yes please commented
Please at least put the option in shared folders "Don't allow other users to delete files" for regular onedrive, just that. thanks

Agreed. The fact that anyone who is given the 'Edit' link can go in and delete files, delete subfolders and so on, makes this a virtually useless feature.
And to add insult to injury, when one does share with the Edit link, there is no warning that anyone you share that link with could just delete all your share stuff.

I agree. If a person shares a document to me (read/write), I can also move the document to my own non shared OneDrive folder. A shared document should only be editable, my opinion.
