HI,

we are having SBS2000 server which is file server also. we have few folder which is shared accross the nerwork. we have 30 user's who access these folder. we want to put sum access right on these shared folder.I try all the microsoft right system but it not full prove. i am looking for third party software.
In our situaion it can not be prevented as we have given laptops (with 80 gb HDs) to the employees (Management Consultants), who can take the laptop to the client site or even home to work from there. As such, once the data/files gets copied on the individual laptops, then nothing can be done. We are looking for security at one step ahead, i.e., we are trying to prevent the copying of the data (i.e., xls, word doc, powerpoint and pdf format files) from the server to the individual laptops.  What we are wanting to know is that whether it is possible to allow the employees to read a file (MS
 Word/Excel/Powerpoint) on the server but prevent copying of the file or the contents of the file (through clipboard copy/paste/Save as with other name on the local machine) from the server to their desktops/laptops (connected to the sever through the LAN).
Actually we want user to read only. We dont him to delte,edit,cut and past,or save the file with other name.

Can u pls help in these regard it very very urget.

Thanks
A

First... have a little patience... while the experts all try to answer as quickly as possible, it is recommended that you allow at least TWO DAYS before expecting an answer.  Usually though, questions in the SBS TA are responded to within 24 hours or so.

For the issues that you describe, you really need to upgrade to Windows Small Business Server 2003 and Office 2003 because those have all of the security features you are looking for.  It's called Information Rights Management (IRM) and you can read more about it here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/office/office2003/operate/of03irm.mspx

I provided you with the solution.  Upgrading to SBS2003 and Office 2003 would most likely be less expensive than any other possible solution.
