How to hide a application folder in window 2012. Will the application work if it is hidden.
Posted on 2014-09-01
We use windows 2012 sever as a file server. When users login into windows 7 PCs , there is a shared drive that gets mapped in the users PC. Within this mapped drive there is a folder called SOSM and there is Data in this folder.
There is a application on the client PCs and when they load up the application, the application looks into the SOSM folder to retrieve the Data.
Firstly is it possible to hide SOSM folder and if I hide will the application access the data.
The reason I want to hide is when this drive is mapped, the domain users have access to the SOSM folder and I don't want them to see the data in the SOSM folder \ accidently delete.
Can this be achieved, please suggest.
