Shared Folder Protector Description
Shared Folder Protector is a software program that can be used in order to protect your shared items, by restricting access to certain actions and inputting a passkey.
Surprise-free setup and tabbed UI
The installation process is a piece of cake, as it does not offer to add any products that are not actually necessary for the app to fully function, and it is over in a jiffy. Once you wrap it up, you are met with a minimal and clean interface, as it only encloses a small menu bar, a few buttons and some tabs which enable a quick access to all the available options. Both power and novice users can work with it, without encountering any issues.
Select items to protect and choose an access method and encryption type
This tool supports removable storage units, local HDDs and a LAN connection. From one of these locations you can easily select a directory that you want to protect. You should know that you can use both the incorporated file browser and the “drag and drop” feature.
Next, you can create several types of access for up to thee users. To be more accurate, you can choose between a read, write, full or custom access. The latter enables you to set up your own rules, such as disabling modifying, printing, renaming, copying, pasting, importing items and deleting, limiting the number of times a folder can be opened, create an expiration date, hide specified folders or only allow an inputted client IP.
It is also possible to choose the encryption level to be used, provide a name and title for the client and, finally input the required password and click the “Protect” button.
To conclude, Shared Folder Protector is an efficient piece of software when it comes to protecting your folders from prying eyes. The interface is accessible to all user categories, comprehensive Help contents are provided, all tasks are completed in a timely manner and there are sufficient options to keep you busy for quite a while.
