Windows Controlled Folders Access and NAS


New Around Here
Ransomware encryption is growing and to counter the threat, Microsoft introduced Controlled Folders Access (CFA) to Windows 10. Basically it blocks access by any non-MS apps or any apps you dont whitelist to any partitions or folders you nominate
But the files on a NAS dont have a similar protection against ransomware.
So my question is, has anybody any experience of including in the list of CFA monitored folders, the mapped drives on a NAS ? I suppose they would need to be included on all PCs that have access to the NAS.

Synology calls it ACL, QNAP calls it Advanced Folder Permissions. They all work in the same way.
