How to password protect a shared folder in Server 2008 R2

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have been searching without success on how to do this. I already have one shared folder without a password, however I would like to create another which requires a logon.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Assuming it's the same as Server 2003, right click on the folder, choose 'Sharing and Security'. Select to 'share this folder'. Click 'permissions'. Adjust what user has what permission.

Thanks, except I don't know what user to allow/modify the settings for. It only allows me to edit local users. My computers aren't on a domain.

advanced sharing settings->turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, and public folder sharing. Make sure these are enabled in both the Home or work and Public profiles.Enable password protected sharing

Create a local user with a password...assign security permission to said folder with newly created user...then when accessing "network" shared folder enter credentials and ta da.

Do you know if I can use the local admin account, or no?

okay, I did this. But how do I enter credentials? When I try to add a new network location by right clicking in my computer I just get a "You do not have permission..." message.
