Dear Experts,

We have a share folder in NT server, I know how to set the authority that they can read the file only or let them to modify or create file etc., but how can I set the authority to avoid them to save as the file at other location, copy the content to the other page or print it out from the file etc. Do I need to use the third parties tools? Please give me some suggestion, thank you so much.

If a person can read a file, they can copy it.  The only way to prevent someone from copying a file, is to prevent them from accessing it.

I'm pretty sure edmonds_robert is correct.  If it can be read, then it can copied, printed, etc.

Another vote for edmonds_robert. As long as someone can read the file, there is no way for you to prevent them from saving it somewhere else, cutting/pasting (copy) to another document, printing it, etc

You could save the file in some proprietary format that requires the reader to download a special reader application that has copy/print/save functions disabled.
Something like a .pdf that requires Acrobat Reader, but the reader must be customized to disable those functions.

Well, if I'm not mistaken this IS functionality of Acrobat Reader. If you buy the full Adobe Acrobat, some of the options which you can embed in a PDF file are 'disable print' and 'disable copy to clipboard'. However the PDF file itself can still be copied etc.

Have fun,
