Lock the folder structure

With the AODocs Smartbar installed, library administrators can lock the folder structure of a Secured Folder library.

1. In Google Drive, open an AODocs library where you are defined as a library administrator.

2. Press the gear button and select Security center.


3. In the Security center window, select the Security tab.

4. Select the checkbox Only administrators can modify the folder structure.

5. Press Done to save.

Note: You may experience some delay to see the changes applied because AODocs needs to update the Google Drive permissions on every file in the Secured Folder. For example, for a library with thousands of documents, it can take several hours before the change is fully effective.


For contributors, the action buttons will be unavailable at the folder level.
