Limit File Access...

By ART23 ·
I would like to be able to limit file access to only one person at a time. I thought at one time I read something about doing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Limit File Access...

Hi,

"Limit file access" like... only one person can open a word document stored on a fileshare at once?

Hmmm... No way that I'm aware of. Unless you knocked up an application to manipulate the permissions on the file and went from there...

Your best bet would be to store the files you want to limit in something like "visual source safe". Then you can do it...

Cheers,
Tim.

Hi,

OK, I had a look and came up with the following product... Is this the kind of thing you had in mind?

No, not exactly. I am not looking for a serperate utility to use but some type of security built in, plus we use NT and Win2k, and that software can be used with either. Thanks though.
