Why is a User ,with only "View" access to a specific Report folder, still able to Save Reports to the folder ?

Knowledge Article Number 000205411
Description I have a User with solely View access to a Report folder, yet the User is still able to Save Reports to the folder and Edit those Reports within the Report Folder. 
Resolution This behavior is related to the 'Edit My Reports' Profile Permission.

This Profile Permission, when enabled, gives a User the ability to Save a Report to a Public folder they may only have View access to. Additionally, this allows them to Edit Reports they've Saved to the folder. Removing this Profile permission removes the ability to save Reports to the Public Folder. However, it preserves their ability to Create, Edit or Clone Reports to their Personal Custom Reports folder. 

NOTE: This Profile Permission will only be available for Organizations with 'Enhanced Folder Sharing' enabled
