c#2010 winforms - folder security
Posted on 2013-09-17
I have an application that is accessing an access database on a shared network drive. This drive is accessible by all, and I am now thinking that it will be a good idea to introduce some more security on the database. The database is password protected, but what I would also like to do is protect the folder that the database is stored in, to prevent access to users. the server is windows 2003
If i allow access to the folder to only my windows login, can I programatically pass my credentials through my c# application, so that it also has access, thus allowing the system to perform as normal, and preventing unwanted users from viewing the content of the folder through windows explorer.
