With worm enabled on a volume, users cannot delete a file or folder, the entire volume has to be deleted. As there are no special rights for any users.

WORM-technology (Write Once, Read Many) allows information to be written to into a disc once and prevents the drive from erasing
the data. The discs are intentionally not rewritable, because they are especially intended to store data that the user does not want to erase accidentally.
