We had a Window 2008 R2 server and we had a share and when user logs into the PCs, the share was getting mapped through GPO and the users were only being able to open files from this share and not able to edit and if required they were able to save the files home drives.

Now I have created a new share in Win 2012 and copied all the files from Window 2008R2 share to Windows 2012 share using robocopy.

I compared the permissions with Windows 2008 share and set the same permissions on windows 2012 share.
I have set the Windows 2012 share to map the drive using the GPO. When users log in the new share gets mapped.

But user are able to open files from the new share and edit and save files to this share, which I don’t want rather I would like user only  to:
  1. To view the file
  2. Should not be able to edit 
  3. Should not be able to save any files to the new share.
Please let me know if I have missed any permission level.
Also please see the attached snapshot of file permissions

Any help will be great  and Thanks in advance
