Guard Against Users Accidentally Moving Folders with Directory Defender

Guilty As Charged!

We’ve pretty much all done it. Clicking around Windows Explorer, at lightning speed, it’s pretty easy to inadvertently move folders.

This causes difficulty when trying to find the folder which is now in the wrong spot.


It happens. But now, you can stop it.

Be On The Lookout

Directory Defender monitors any folder movement and displays an error message to prevent such action.

Stop unintentional folder moves from happening before they start.

Filter protection by folder. Protect every folder, or just a few select folders from being moved.

Exclude users and groups from blocking folder moves.
