How best can I restrict access to shared folder access by some apps? I try to run some apps with specific user access so as to restrict access to some shared folder that is accessed by apps for different business purposes. Due to recent security breach, I try to restrict access to this shared folder, but the apps stop running as required. What other ways can I use to secure the share folder?

Open Windows Explorer, locate the folder like you want to restrict the Shared Folder
Right click on it, go to the properties and click on the security tab.
Then click on denying and it is done. If you want to allow, the permission the follow the same procedure and click on allow.

Hi Marco!

 The best option for you to do that is set or share it with read only access. Read only means that everyone can only see the folder and its name, but they can not change any content of a folder or see what is inside it. You can do that by navigating to Start, then Administrative tools and Share and Storage management. So, now share the folder with everyone , but previously permitted to read only.
