Hi, I am using Windows 2003 enterprise Edition. I am sharing a folder in the network. I want to set permissions that will allow the user open the file and read it but he should not be able to copy those files to his local drive. Thanks in Advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Unforunately if the user has the ability to read the file they can copy the file to thier local hard drive. Both operations use the same rights on the source directory (READ). In order to stop them from doing this you would need to lock the user from writting to thier local hard drive.

    You could possibly use some form of 'document protection' feature available with Word/Office and PDF files. I haven't used this type of feature before but depending on your situation it could be worth investigating (eg. if it's just Office or PDF files you're interested in protecting...and only a limited number).
