With Folder Shield enabled, can I still save documents inside the shield to an external hard drive without doing something else?

Hello @williamevans75 and welcome to the Trend Micro Community

Thank you for letting us know about this question that you have in mind.

The Folder Shield can only protect local folders that are on your computer. The Folder Shield does not support or cannot protect removable devices such as your external hard drive.

I hope this answers your question. Should you have any other concern, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Enjoy the rest of the week!
