I'm running Win2003 Server as a PDC.

Is there anyway to secure a file so that only specified users can read, write, or do both, without taking ownership (through all available means such as copying that file).

Can I secure the file so that when it is copied and load on to, say, home computer (not belong ot domain) it cannot be opened? - and all this through the file security permission?

Hi SC2002Admin,

You can use Encrypted File System (EFS) to encrypt files so that only certain users can access the files and when users attempt to take the files home, the file does not get copied because it the OS states that it is corrupt.
