Protect Your Google Drive Folders By Setting Permissions
October 20, 2016
So how do you protect any of the other folders on your computer from people looking, stop pointing at DB as the problem if your not locking people out of the computer.
If you give all users Edit permissions - ie you allow people within can find and edit” - then all users will be able to move” files and folders. See The difference between Add and Move in Google Drive for reasons why this may not be a smart idea. Instead, consider setting the top level folder to View only - ie you allow people within can find and view” - and then decide on sub-level folder permissions by users or email groups.
I guess instead we should talk about you… that's a good idea! I have no reason for me not so use those words, they are parts of BASIC HUMAN SPEECH. I haven't attacked anyone here like you, and yet here you are with your tiny-dick-roid-rage, throwing out profanity password protect folder like a little kid throwing a tantrum. It's evident that YOU are the real gutter trash here, yeah, YOU should be one to talk! You have some serious problems, little child. Go bang your head against a wall, I'm sure you're good at that — and not much else.
One of Dropbox's newer premium features offers a bit of a workaround to one aspect of the problem of protecting sensitive files. Essentially, Dropbox lets users set a password for any shared link that they create. This helps to ensure that only collaborators with permission access your sensitive shared content. It can get a bit messy, because each member of a shared folder can create multiple unique shared links to its contents, with several different passwords flying around.
Unfortunately, it doesn't use the absolute best encryption in the industry — AES 256-bit — and instead uses Blowfish 448-bit encryption. While its encryption is strong, it's not at the level of AES 256. So, that's a major setback. Pair that with the fact that it doesn't have a file shredder, and Data Guardian 3 falls lower and lower on the list for Mac encryption and protection needs.
