Need a utility or script to password protect 300 excel files which are located in 300 separate folders on a network drive.
The reason being if someone accidentally emails any of these files they would be protected.
We do have email encryption already, but this would be for the case when a file is accidentally thought to be non-sensitive and emailed in the clear, but actually it is sensitive.
This way we have peace of mind that those files are protected.
Someone can sit and do all 300 using Excel, but I was thinking somebody out there had to make a utility by now for this... like Folder Guard (which didn't work).
The protection has to stay with the file and the files are stored on a Microsoft 2012 server.
