What Are Protected Folders?
Using Protected Folders
- Within a protected folder create a new .txt file
- Notice an anchor sign has been added to the file. This means the file is now encrypted with the default access rules.
- Right-click the new file and open with WordPad. Add some content to the file and close.
Right-click and open the file with Notepad. Notice you will not have access to plain text since Notepad is not a whitelisted application.
