Restrict download and printing document from sharepoint document library RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am facing issue in giving a set of users such permission so that they can only view the documents but can't download and print those documents.
    What I tried to do till now is : created a document library and a folder inside this library, for folder I choose to stop inheriting permissions and given the user permission here as "view only". I want to put all the documents which will have restricted access in this folder and giving the users permission accordingly. Other documents in the library can be viewed by everyone as per there permissions.
    Now for testing I added a user in site collection as Contributor, and in the folder I gave him view only permission. I also cross checked these permissions for document library and for the folder inside document library. For document library user is having contributor, limited access and for the folder user have view only access. Now when I log in using users credentials, I saw that user can download the documents from folder. 
    I also tried to stop inherit for library and then giving the permission to user. But hav't helped.

    Anyone faced such issue please help.
