PROTECT DIRECTORIES ©                                                                                                               112 PROTECT DIRECTORIES Protect Directories Overview Using the Protect Directories option, you can limit the amount of access users have to your site.  You can specify a username and password for the directory you are protecting.  Each protected directory can have multiple users (each with different passwords if you prefer) who have access to it.   Additionally, the Protect Directories option can be used to remove a userís access from a protected directory. Note: In order to use the Protect Directories option, the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions option must be disabled.   If it is enabled, then you must use your version of Microsoft FrontPage to protect the directories.  If the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions option is enabled, you will not have access to the Protect Directories option and will see the following message if you try to access it. Example: If you want to grant only select users access to a particular directory on your site, you can set up protection on that directory by using one user name and one password.  Then, if someone requests access to files in that directory, you can give that user the corresponding user name and password.
