    Forbid saving webpage to HDD?

    Is there a way to prevent people from saving a webpage on their computer?

    The moment someone loads a page it's in a temp file on their pc. No, there's no way.

    Web browsers save a copy to the hard drive first thing. It is that copy and not the copy from the server that they then display.

    The only way to not allow a web page to be saved to your visitors hard drive is to place it in a password protected folder where they can't access it. Of course in that case you may as well not upload it in the first place.

    Some sites sell code that claims to be able to encrypt your web page so that it will only work from the site but even the most advanced and most expensive of these can be easily decrypted using nothing but a web browser and a couple of lines of Javascript so anyone taking that approach has wasted their money.

    I've come across web pages that can't be saved.
    I'd select File then save page as. "Html complete".
    THen the browser would hit around 50% saved then pop up a error saying
    "Can't save this File"

    The server or your connection was bad. Has nothing to do with your inability to save.
