Default Preventing access

Hi all
I would like to know if there is anyway to prevent access to a folder from someone that is using your computer... like making her need a password or something to access those files... is that possbile? I read something about encrytion in the help files but I am not really sure of how they work...

Since you got Xp you'll need to convert Fat32 to NTFS for better security. Read your other thread to find out how.

You can do this with a great program called Password Protect. Find more information at

If your looking for a easy way to do this for files located in SHARED DOCUMENTS, this website will explain how to do that.
