Solidworks Rename vs PDM rename

Solidworks has a right-click flyout for Rename and does not work with PDM correctly.  Basically, outside of PDM, you can right-click> Solidworks>Rename flyout function.  However in PDM, when you right click on the Solidworks file and rename it generates a new file in the vault.  Is there anyway to block this Solidworks feature in PDM?  The issue is it doesn't really rename it, it creates a copy of the file and creates a local copy.


I know engineers can be trained, I just want to prevent anyone from using this feature.  Since in PDM to rename it is just to check it out and do it in the data card.
