Can I Password Protect a mapped drive or Shard folder on SBS 2003
Posted on 2009-02-11
I have had a request today that a users shared folder is password protected, even for that allowed user, so a password is required each time it is accessed.
Basically the run down is, the user wants to have to enter a password everytime he opens the mapped drive, even though he is authenticated by the Server already. He wants to be able to just close the folder window and walk away from his PC (without logging off or locking the screen) knowing that any body walking passed still has to enter a password to access his shared folder/mapped drive.
I know this is not a common request, but it is what he wants. I have suggested just locking the screen but he does not want to do this.
Is there anything built in to Microsoft SBS 2003 that will allow this? Either if it is a workaround?
I had an idea to deny the user access to his own folder, but then add a second account wiith full access meaning that he is not authenticated at logon.
Any help or further idea's would be appreciated.
