Permissions

Got an issue where weve got some data on a server that an application uses. Secured the data so its read only.
However staff are now copying the data from the server to their local machine and working on the local data. When I try to secure the server data so it can be copied the only way Ive found is to remove the Read extended attributes permission, but this then causes the application to be denied access when trying to open the file.
Is there a nice clean easy way to stop staff copying data from the Server.
Recommended tying down Workstations but the implications on the effects of other software having to write to local machines are huge and not feasible at the moment.

Hi Brian,

as long as users need Read Permissions on files there is no easys way to
prevent this.

One option would be to setup WRMS (Windows Rights Management Services).
