We have basic security applied to a shared folder so only the authorized user can access the resource. The folder contain Illustrator and Photoshop files.

We would like to have a better authority control on it.

  1. Disallow user to copy the file from wireframe folder to their local machine.

If #1 is feasible, we have a concern that the user can open the file from the shared folder and use "Save As" to copy the file to their local machine. The user should still have a right to modify the file and use "Save" in Photoshop/Illustrator.

We are using Photoshop/Illustrator CS4.
