Share-Level Protection

If you share a folder on your ECU or personal computer, everyone on the network has read permission by default. This means that both internal (ECU) and external (Internet) users can access that folder on your computer.

IT Security recommends that users share data from a Piratedrive folder rather than a folder on your computer. 

To control who has access to any shared data in your Piratedrive folder, add individual users from the security tab of the folder's properties. Next, set the level of access for each user, such as read, write or full control. See the Set User Permissions PDF document in the Piratedrive website.

Use Caution when sharing folders. Ensure you share only the folders that need to be shared and remove the access when the folders no longer should be shared.

See Guidelines For Protecting Sensitive Data for more tips on data protection.
