    Hi Everybody,
    I have a small windows server 2003 active directory network, I have a
    network share
    directory with some files shared for everybody, how can I give permission on
    this directory
    to let users copy the file to their client computer but not open it directly
    from the share directory?
    I don't want them to just click on share file and read it but able to copy.

    Second question:
    If a share file on network locked by a client machine how can I release it?
    I mean
    Sometimes people open the document directly from the share directory then
    nobody else can
    change the file (Rename/delete,...) even the Admin, It seams that it's
    locked by the client?

    Thank you in advance - Sam
