Default Locking folders...

How do I lock a folder for Windows XP? For example, the user of a computer must have a password to enter a folder containing files. How do I do this?

I always just used PGP to encrypt all my data. Also why not just setup user areas with each user having limited privileges, so that they can only access their own files.

The easiest way to go about this is to set up 2 accounts on your system. One for you as the administrator, and one for anyone else as a guest.

Then set up the permissions where they can't gain access to that folder.
