Default Password Protected Folders


Are there any software applications out there that would allow me to password protect a folder so that if anybody tried to access the folder they would have to enter a password first ?

I think this can be done using Winzip or Winrar. Only problem is it's compressed.

Depends on what yer talking about, iceware.

If yer talking about folders in the system, you can just use Windows to control the access of those folders, quite easily.

If yer talking about sending files to other people, you'll need a 3rd party app, like winzip or winrar.
