we have an application that needs a network share for storing text files.
The problem is that users can browse with windows explorer to this share and make changes to these text files with for example Word, this is not recommended because every change to these files should be done through the application that needs this share.

So is there a possibility to disable browsing to this nss share in windows explorer? But browsing this share must be possible through the applications open file dialog :) ?

I don't think there is a solution for this but I would be very very very happy if you have any trixs to make this possible.
