A Rights Protected Folder is similar to a file folder in that it contains files and folders. However, a Rights Protected Folder controls access to the files that it contains, no matter where the Rights Protected Folder is located.

What is Rights Protected Folder Explorer

Rights Protected Folder Explorer will allow you to work with Rights Protected Folders. By using Rights Protected Folder Explorer, you can securely store or send files to authorized users and control which users will be able to access those files while they are in the Rights Protected Folder.

Rights Protected Folder Explorer works with Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) in your organization’s network to control access to Rights Protected Folders.

When you create a new Rights Protected Folder, Rights Protected Folder Explorer allows you to select a policy to protect the contents of the Rights Protected Folder. You can even create a custom policy. The policies that you can select from are set by your network’s AD RMS administrators and are the same policies you can use in such applications as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Outlook to protect documents and messages. Rights Protected Folder Explorer supports both UI based support and command line support for automated solutions.

You can use Rights Protected Folder Explorer a number of ways to protect important files so that only authorized users can access them. The following are just a few of these ways:

  1. Protect information on your computer in case it is lost, stolen, or broken into
  2. Protect information that you send in email
  3. Protect information that you store on a network

You can uninstall Rights Protected Folder Explorer from the Control Panel or by using the command line. To uninstall using the command line you can use the command rpfexplorer /uninstall.
