    How to Change File Sharing Encryption Level in Windows 10


    File and printer sharing is the ability of a computer running Windows to share a folder or attached printer with other computers on a network.
    • File sharing allows you to make files and folders in a shared folder accessible to others on the network to view, copy, or modify.
    • Printer sharing allows you to make an attached printer available to other computer users on the network.
    Windows uses 128-bit encryption to help protect file sharing connections by default. Some devices do not support 128-bit encryption and must use 40- or 56-bit encryption.

    This tutorial will show you how to change to use 128-bit or 40- or 50-bit encryption for file sharing on all networks in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to change the file sharing encryption level.

  3. File and Printer Sharing Between Vista and Windows 10

    Hi,

    To share a folder in Windows Vista, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • Ensure that file sharing is enabled as described in the Enabling File and Printer Sharing Options section of this article.
    • Click Start, and then click Computer.
    • In the Computer window, navigate to the folder containing the folder that you want to share.
    • Right-click the folder that you want to share, and then click Share. The
      File Sharing window is displayed.
    • If you have password protected sharing enabled, use the File Sharing window to select which users can access the shared folder and their permission level. To allow all users, select
      Everyone in the list of users. By default, the permission level for a selected user is Reader. Users cannot change files or create new files in the share. To allow a user to change files or folders or create new files or folders, select Co-owner
      as the permission level. Figure 5 shows an example of configuring users and permission levels in the
      File Sharing window.

      If you have password protected sharing disabled, use the File Sharing window to select the Guest or Everyone account. This is equivalent to simple file sharing in Windows XP.
    • When complete, click Share, and then click Done.

    Hope the above information helps.

  4. Change File Sharing Encryption Level in Windows 10

    Windows XP file encryption

    My suggestion to you is to look into what kind of encryption the program used, and look for a way to break that type of encryption. Sorry I can't say a specific program for sure.
