NTFS Permissions

I have a user setup so they can only read certain folders and files. Is there a way to allow them to copy those files but not let them do anything else within the folders they can see like delete or run a file?

If you have the user setup with just Read access, they can copy the files out of that folder but cannot write/modify/delete/run a file.

Hi,
Keep share the level access with read permissions and Keep the Security setting with read and write option would help you out

I tired it and it worked! This is what I thought so I guess something else must be wrong. We have internal programs that must not be working the way I think they are but thanks for the help everyone.
