NTFS Permission to deny user to copy files




I have installed windows server 2003. I have a shared folder and i
assigned only read permission to the users. I want to assign the
permission that no user should be able to copy data from the share
folder he could only read the data of share folder for security
purposes. can any body help me to resolve this.

Hello Adnan,

You can not prevent that. The user can also save a copy on it's local machines
and do what she/he want's with it.

Best regards

You can't do this with NTFS. You will need to use a digital rights
management (drm) controlling server. Microsoft has such a product but I
can't remember its name and I can't find the stupid thing. The way it works
a document is encrypted and the only way to read it is to request access
from the drm server. You can control whether or not you can, read, write,
copy, print or e-mail. If someone attempts to place it on a usb drive an
take it with them, the user will be unable to open it up until they can
contact the drm server and be given the authority to read it.

If important let me know and I will find the name of the server. I'll
probably look some more today anyways, kind of bugging me been looking for
this am w/o any luck.
