  • Hide contain of a folder

    HI,

    Im looking for a way to have a share drive, so people can execute the .exe (through a desktop shortcut ) in that folder but not able to see it, copy it ?

    Thanks

    No, there isn't really a way to do what you've described. This is because a user with execute permissions is also allowed to read, traverse a folder (they can see its contents) and copy any file in it (assuming they have explicit permissions to do so for each file).

    If all you want to do is keep the user from seeing the share when browsing computers you can hide it - sharename$ will do that. Even still a saavy user would be able to see the share location in the shortcut properties.
