show which files are "password-protected"

I am curious if there's any way to show which files in specific folders are "password-protected" vs. which ones are not.
If you don't have, could you refer me any closest software products out there?

RE: show which files are "password-protected"

In Acrobat Professional, File, Open, at the View dropdown, choose Details, then right-click in one of the column headers, and click on 'Protected'. See if that shows what you're looking for....

RE: show which files are "password-protected"

Hello Fred:
I already tried to show column for 'Protected'.
But the column shows "blank" for those files with password protection.

RE: show which files are "password-protected"

Very strange. I just flagged a file Read-Only, and looked with the Protected column displayed, and it didn't show anything either. Have you tried posting this issue on Adobe's web site ? I wonder what 'Protected' IS supposed to show ?
