Detecting "Save a Copy" Saves in Abrobat 11 or older

I was wondering if there is a way to write code to detect when "Save a Copy" is used in Acrobat 11 or older when saving a document? I would like to use said code to popup an app alert to advise the user, prior to saving, that using "Save a Copy" strips Reader extensions and that they should instead save using "Save" or "SaveAs". I know I can use the app alert in the presave event but it allows the user to save first before the alert is shown and I would very much like the warning to come first so they can cancel the save. Acrobat DC appears to have removed "Save a Copy" so my question is specific to Versions 9-11.

Thanks in advance!

How and what would I apply and can this be done within the form or does it have to be done at the server level? I do have users outside of the company so they wouldn't have access to our servers.

If you don't want them to do that, you can apply standard security restrictions to prevent it but still allow normal use of the form (in most cases).
