Hello @mightybrianc678, thanks for reaching out to us. 

 

Generally, you can only lock a file from being edited at the moment. 

 

However, you mention that no one should have access to the folders. 

 

Are you referring to the local Dropbox folder by any chance?  

 

Let me know and we'll take it from there, cheers!
