Hello,

I'm just curious if there is any way that you can password protect a folder (and all its contents) without using any additional programm or encription software? Is this possible?

I am using Win98SE, I have a folder with a large amount of files in it which I am going to copy to a cd however I would like to password protect the folder or the CD, I know there are a few programmes around, however is there a way it could be done using windows itself, or if not do you know of a good encription programme. Does Winzip allow you to compress and password protect the folder?

Hi ReseviorDog,

I am using Window XP Home Edition and my harddisk is formatted as NTFS.
I need to make some folders invalid to other users.

So is there a way i can restrict certain users from accessing certain folders or hard drives?

Apart from making those folders as hidden because they are still accessible to everyone.
