Password protect multiple files in Adobe pro DC

Hi,

I used to be able to password protect all files in a particular folder on my Adobe 9 Pro by using batch processing. I've followed instructions on how to do this in DC using the Action Wizard but cannot get it to apply the password at the folder level. Whenever I try and apply the password it prompts me for passwords for each individual file within the folder. Has anyone an idea of where I'm going wrong?

Thanks

Make sure the Prompt User box is NOT ticked under the "Encrypt" command in your Action.

Do you have Acrobat Pro? Do you know how to create and use an Action?

Thank you for your response. I just found the answer. I password protected multiple files using Action Wizard.

But it asks the password again and again for each file. Is there a simpler way to do it.
