Could this be done. . .wait a minute. . . this a linux server or a Winders
one. . .?
Anyway, could you use root postexec on that folder and once the student
logs out, root postexec could be used to move the files to another
directory that you have access to but no one else does?
The student could drop the file there and even go back and change or
delete it as long as they remain logged in but as soon as they log out,
the post exec would move the files. And set the rights to rwx------ for
all files that go in there so that only the user that dropped the file in
there could read or change it.
