Allow read-only access to Thumb Drives via Program Neighborhood and Web Client in Citrix?

We are trying to lock down our Citrix environment. We have users with thumb drives that copy data up to servers via Citrix. We are fine with that. However, we want to prevent them from copying company data back down to the thumb drives. Is there any way to lock this down in Citrix? As far as I can tell, all local drives and thumb drives just show up as mapped drives with no way to define things as read only within Citrix. I'm sure there must be a solution!

Unfortunately, this will prevent our sites from deleting data from their Thumb drives. If, for example they are using a camera card, they still need to be able to delete photos that might be on the card and not allow them to copy new data to the card...
if you give the application service read/write permissions,  your application should be able to remove files

 i believe read only permissions will only apply to your user.

is company data different than images?

put all workers that should not have access to company data into a group and use ntfs permissions to deny access to the group


They all have access to company data. We have sites where the managers need to take photos of apartments and upload them to the servers. We still need them to be able to remove those photos from the card. However, we do not want them copying data from the server back to that same thumb drive.
use ntfs file permissions to block access to the company data
