Is there any way to prevent certain folders from being copied onto someone (in the network)'s hard drive? the server is Windows Small Business Server 2003, and 5 people are in the network. If I restrict access to the folder in question, then no one can use it; if I open it up to everyone, then they can copy the files to their hard drive. I have been searching for about 3 hours on this problem, and I can't find any information on it. If this is possible, please let me know (and how). If not, let me know that too.

If you want them to see it but not mdify it set the attributes to READ ONLY. Create one community (Shared) folder and lock out the rest. You could also set a password for each visible folder.
