Folder Permissions

Is there a way to give permissions on a folder/file on a Windows 2008 server that would only allow users to read the files and NOT be able to create a copy of a file?

With standard ACLs, Read right implies Copy. You may need something like Active Directory Rights Management Services https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc772403.aspx

HI

You can probably save the file as read only also. what are the files type inside the folder?

In any case, if the user really wants the file content, he/she could take pictures of the screen.

NewVillageIT is wright. As soon you can open a file, even if the folder or file his is read only, you can always save it somewhere else.

But from what i think you are trying to do, it is to find a way to protect what's inside that specific folder so that no ones delete or alter the content of it. correct?

Do you have any SharePoint site available to you?

Can can easily put restrictions on folders on sharepoint.
