File Blocking Using Access Protection

I want to prevent users from copying MP3 files from a network share to their local workstation drives. I know how to block one drive on the computer or the file all together. But if I block the file, that blocks it from being saved to the network share as well.


Right now I have something like this.

Rule Name:

MP3 Blocking


Processes to include:



Processes to exclude:




File or folder name to block:



Read access to files (unchecked)

Write access to files (unchecked)

Files being executed (unchecked)

New Files being created (checked)

Files being deleted (unchecked)


I want to block mp3's from being copied to both C drive and D drive. But I want them to still have the ability to save them to the network share. The way I have it above only blocks for C but writing to D and the network is still doable. I can't have them saving to D either.
