## How to protect file on USB from being copied? PDF copy protection, Copy protect PDF on USB drive and Hard Disk, USB Stick Content Copy Protection - PDF Protect-Software

How can I prevent PDF file on USB flash drive to being copy and paste either via right click or drag and drop copy to other device that is hookup to it like a PC? The file will be PDF, document file, JPG or some other image file, and some movie file etc.?

The scenario is the file will be needed to be just viewable to show people but they cannot copy any part of it out from it other than admin level that create/authorize full control of it. Example is like a person on a field trip is bring some presentation stored on USB flash drive and show it on field premise to showcase company stuff like brochure, PowerPoint, concept drawing, sales figure etc. but we do not allowed them to have those file on the USB drive to being able to copied off to client's PC or even their own home without authorization. Not even a phrase or JPG image from a particular document etc. Pretty much just view only mode.

"Yes, VeryPDF Cloud DocSafe can be locked on special USB disk, it will read USB Disk's serial number, if current USB Disk's serial number is not equal to predefined USB Disk's serial number, you will not able to view this VPDF file."

I've put a Kingstom USB stick in my computer to test the ability to lock VPDF to USB stick, it's not working.

Program does not provide me with USB neither it doesn't lock VPDF to that USB stick if I manually insert it's ID:

Another question: if I want to lock VPD to Hard disk ID, is there any utility that I can send to customer in order for him to provide me with his HD ID?
