If a user has the ability to read the files in the share, they can also copy them.  There is no distinction between Read access, and Copy access.

Then two things
1) is any utility or software that provides complete logs on shared folder as is read, deleted or copied, modified by users on shared folders.

2) can we encrypt the shared data in such a way it should be readable only in domain, lets say if data copied to local computer is should search out for file server interaction for any sort of authentication or authorization.

Look forward to your reply.

Thanks

You can audit all file access - see the linked article - Auditing NTFS Access

If you encrypt the files using EFS, they would only be able to be opened by domain machines.  However, the content could still be copied out into unencrytped documents.

Basically, if you don't trust the people with access to your files, you have a problem that technology probably cannot solve.
