The File listing protection allows you to disable the file listing over the web for directories under your account that do not have index files. If such a directory is accessed in a web browser, the web visitor would normally see the list of the files/directories there. By disabling the directory listing, you would prevent this.

To enable the protection, you need to browse to the directory you want to protect at the Web access protection section. You should note that the protection works recursively and will affect all lower-level directories. To apply the protection, you need to click the Disable button under the File listing column.
