Do you share a computer with other users and want some extra security on your folders? There are two ways to password protect a folder built into Windows XP (for other Windows flavors, there are some freeware/shareware programs out there).
Type in a password then confirm it. Click the “Create Password” button then close the Password window.
Click OK in the Properties dialog box.
Now anyone else logged on to your computer can’t access that file without knowing your password.
#2. If the Folder is Zipped you can give it a unique password.
Type a password into the Password box. Then again in the “Confirm Password” box.
Now, you are the only person who can access files in this folder. The folder can be opened allowing the files to be seen, but you are the only one who can access them.
Don’t you feel more secure now?
