"Password shared folder on network"


Password Shared Folder (aka Shared Folder Protector) is a corporate software tool to prevent access to network folders within a local area network or provide controlled access to folders using certain file permissions.

The software can accept multiple user groups with users within a group who can be assigned folder/file access permissions. There are 15 different permissions that can be set within a group. These permissions covers commands like copy, save as, print, rename, read, etc. Therefore, the software doesn't just simply prevent unauthorized access to whole folders, but is also allows particular kinds of controlled access for groups of users at the corporate level.

There is a media player and viewer program that allows access to certain file types using supplied apps to ensure that the documents cannot be copied, saved, moved or printed without permission.

Document protection logs maintain proper records are kept of which users have accessed protected folders, files and documents.


The installation completed without any issues.

There was no adware, toolbars, spyware or malware included with the setup package.

Password Shared Folder requires Windows 98, ME,2000, XP, Vista, 7 or Windows Server.


The interface is a pretty simple one. There is a minimal menu system, with a small handful of toolbar buttons as well.

There is also a tabbed navigation interface for "Select folders," "Permission Setting," "Options," and "Encrypt Now."

The process of adding new folders to protect, setting their options and encrypting data will be a fairly easy one to setup for most users. Therefore, whilst it would be preferable only to have senior, experienced IT personnel managing folder and file access permissions, the task can also be handled by a less experienced IT technicians with suitable training.
