I need help regarding OneDrive for Business (may be possible through SP Online but I couldn't figure it out). 

I have few folders in my OneDrive. I want Myself & TEAM LEADERS to READ, WRITE, DOWNLOAD all the files and folders (which is currently working fine). But I want some TEAM MEMBERS to READ & WRITE ONLY but NOT DOWNLOAD files from ONE particular folder (and they should be able to Read/Write/Download files in other folders). I don’t know if it’s even possible to do so in a folder level, if yes, then how can I do that?

 

I tried Allow Editing option below but it blocks them from editing files (which is NOT what I want).

 

And if it is NOT POSSIBLE then why OneDrive for Business makes it so complicated (it should be an easy thing in such a HUGE platform right)???

 

Thank you in advance.
