How to block users from saving documents in Share Point

By ·
We use Share Point as our Intranet to share documents. I need to allow users to read and print and even type in the PDF's but don't want them to be able to save to their machine's.

If you wish to prevent users from saving files to his/her own workstation hard drive, you can try to modify the NTFS permissions of the drive or folder on the workstation.

Or you can try to be slick and "hide" the drive from the user.

There may be other ways too. =]

Thanks for the reply. I really don't want to stop them from saving all together. Just the files in Sharepoint becuase when we make updates and they are still using the ones they saved to their home directory, they are using outdated forms. So really just trying to stop them from saving copies of the files on Share Point.
