Folder Depth in Samba

A few of our users are adept at creating folders like
2015\2015 something\event\2015 event\document\2015

which makes their documents close to impossible to find. Is there any way I can restrict the depth of the folders they are allowed to create?

Tough one. Only limit close to this I think is path length...number of bytes/chars in path. Can you use something like locate (if this is linux) to cache filenames so that you can quickly find them?

Of course the guy in this link (Bastard Operator From Hell Official Archive) would write a script to test the users depth and just delete the files.
