    cant you download the files into a read only shared area? that way they dont have to download any files.

    I don't think that sort of lockdown is possible in Group Policy.

    The best you might be able to do is remove right click access.

    If you create an shared folder you can use the CREATOR/OWNER-settings so that people can create files, read all files, but not change/delete files created by others (or by themselves)

    Couldn't you just punish a student and make them download them all and put them on a local shared drive/intranet so everyone can use/view them?


    hmm apparently there is no spoiler tags with a black background or a strikethrough bbcode.

    That would be a great idea but not what i'm looking for. I think i have found a way by adding the site to a restriced zone in IE then using GP to stop them downloading from there?? not sure if it will work though!

    Why not find out what videos are required a week before hand, download them, have them on a mapped drive for the kids, give them READ ONLY access. That way you can download them as needed, and your servers are not overloaded. We went down that route and it worked perfectly.

    The video's are stored on the clipbank server. think the boss is looking for minimal mess around as we have enough to do when the staff and kids are in.

    What kind of firewall \ content filtering system do you have in place? You might be able to stop it at source before it even gets as far as the machines...

    Or thinking about it just block downloads of .mpg from the Internet completely?

    It's not from the internet in's a server on our intranet. It is all for educational purposes but we just dont want each one of our 1200 pupils to have 2Gb of video by the end of the year

    Depending on how your filtering is set uo, if you are using a proxy.pac you may be able to perform some fun trick there?

    We have it!! All we needed to do was put that intranet page into it's own Zone in IE then restrict file downloads from the site. Sorted in GP
