I run filezilla on a win 7 notebook that is sometimes used by my colleagues.

I want to have filezilla contents in a saved environment - and want to make sure that no body else has access to the server.

Should I put filezilla contents in hidden folder or in a folder that is encrypted and that gives access only after a password is given.

This option can be realized by the encryption methods for folders that is given by Winrar. In other words - with winrar I can set up a folder that has only access for those that know the password.

Can I do this like so1?

  • I do not see how WinRAR can help here. You should use Windows file encryption. May 19, 2019 at 19:02
  • Honestly, if your computer has a password protection to login. THAT should solve your hidden or encrypted dilemma. Why would you need to encrypt something that other people (FTP users) have access to anyway. May 19, 2019 at 20:29
  • I'm pretty sure that you can't share or network an encrypted folder or files. I've never heard of such a thing. But I could be wrong. May 19, 2019 at 20:31
