File Share Manager

Use this tool to create a file share user profile to retrieve the contents from File Shares, which are added in the search content source. These user credentials are used to access the file share source, which are added in the search crawl index and to export the file share contents to the target location. These user profiles are stored securely in Windows Stored User Names and Passwords / Credential Manager.

SPListX stores the file share user profile in the local computer and will be accessible only by the user who creates the user profile. If the user who creates the file share user profile has a Roaming user account in the enterprise, the stored user profile can be accessed in any computer in the Windows enterprise

The stored file share user profile can be used by SPListX application only. The credential information is stored securely in 256 bit encrypted format in Windows Stored User Names and Passwords / Credential Manager.
