Prevent User from downloading of Files?

Hi

Can anyone advise how I can prevent users from downloading files from a folder being given as read_only access?

Many thanks.

Hello Mark,

You can't AFAIK. When a user has been granted read access (or read/write) to a folder they will be able to read file contents and save them elsewhere. Dropbox and Google for Business seem to be able to share files for view only. Maybe a feature request for Asustor?

Best regards,

Hi

Thanks for your information - I was starting to think that was the likely situation. I think i'll be putting a request through in that case, as I can see it not just being useful for me but for many others out there, though I guess that read access means a user could use screen capture software in any case.

Thanks
