  • This is a windows operating system kind of question rather than a wpf question.

    The best way to store sensitive data is not to expose it to the internet at all.

    OneDrive already has a log in and share link mechanism you could use though.

    I would be inclined to use onedrive and email whoever you want to links to your files.

    You can make them read or write links.

    If that isn't attractive then set your pc up as a secure ftp server and give people passwords.

    If that isn't enough then write some asp.net web api services serve the files and a web site to make logging on user friendly.

    None of which is WPF.

    Hope that helps.
