      How do I protect an Acrobat XI PDF file from being copied and moved to an external drive?

          You could use a USB blocker application to prevent transfer by USB stick. I have not used those products, so I can't recommend anything.

           

          But if you do not want anyone to open it without permission, you can assign a strong Open password. That would be easier and the file is no good to anyone without the password.  File > Properties > Security and select Password.
