The way to prevent users from copying files anywhere they have WRITE access, like a local workstation, would be to prevent users from READING the files, which means that they can't be opened or used at all.  There's nothing in NTFS that you can do on the server side. You would need to prevent users from writing files client side, or prevent access to web based email, drop box, etc.

The only way I know of is to use Microsoft's Active Directory Rights Management Services. Note, that it requires additional licensing.

you could use icacls to deny access https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753525(v=ws.11).aspx. I will do some testing and get back to you but I believe the right to deny are the  M - modify access and RX - read and execute access rights.
