What are protected folders?
Protected folders are locations within the organization where protected content can be consumed. A file will not be consumable when outside of a designated protected folder. Examples include endpoint common user folders, on-prem network drives, and cloud-based document-sharing services.
Users can add Onedrive/SharePoint folder as a Protected folder under specific user roles. Anchor will automatically assign that folder as a Protected folder for all the users that are added to the user role. There are three steps to add
Onedrive/SharePoint folder as a Protected folder
Collect the Common path for Onedrive/SharePoint drive: Users can install Onedrive/SharePoint to any folder on their workstation. By Default Onedrive/SharePoint drive is installed under the C:\Users\(Username). Admin needs to make sure All users installed Onedrive.SharePoint under default path. Admin needs to get the Username for all users. Admin needs to collect path from User if a user installed Onedrive/SharePoint to different Path.
For example, In the below image, OneDrive is installed Under the default Path. C:\Users\19024\OneDrive o DAtAnchor Inc\
19024 is the Username/login name for the Windows workstation. For all the users, the path is going to be the same with a different username in the path.
Configure Protected folder: DAtAnchor team can add all the paths to the protected folder from Backend or Admin can manually add all the paths as Protected folder under User role.
Admin Right Click and Anchor folder from their workstation: Admin needs to Right-click on the OneDrive/SharePoint folder and
'Anchor,' 'Anchor My Data,' and 'Add Protection and Anchor My Files.' Admin only need to this for one time when adding folder as Protected folder.
