I have a problem, I need to create a rule that allows me to have read rights in a USB device, but don't let me copy files to the hard disk.
Is this possible??
Tell me how I can do it please!

What version and build of DeviceLock are you running?

What permissions do you have set for USB and Removable in your Permissions?

I am running DeiceLock Version: 7.0.0 (Build 29517).

In Removable: I have only one user my_domain\user

Generic > Read
Encrypted > Read

In USB port: I have only one user my_domain\user

Generic > Read, Eject

If I set read rights, i know that user can open the files and also can copy to the hard disk.
Is there any way that he can open the files but he can't copy to the hard disk?

The only way to stop a user from writing to the Hard Disk would be to set Read Only permissions on the Hard Disk device type. This will also affect the users ability to save any data to the Hard Disk, so it is not recommended unless your users use network shares to store all saved work rather than their local hard disk.
DeviceLock is designed to control access to specified types of data as well as to keep data from being removed from endpoints by being written/copied to external storage, etc. It is not necessarily designed to keep data from being saved to an endpoint from an external storage source.
