freeware website


Recommended Posts

It used to be in utilities on ASC.... I dont know what version it was and it wasn't any of the websites you just mentioned.... Im trying to find a free program that will protect my folders without encrypting them... by just entering a password.... Does anyone know a good program?


Many Thanks

In XP, right click the concerned folder, click Properties and click Sharing tab.


Check "Make this folder private" checkbox of Local sharing and security, click Apply, and click OK.


Now anyone else logged on to your computer can't access that files without knowing your password.


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.


If you don't feel secure enough, then use the IObit's File Protection Beta software as Melvin_Deal suggests, as it will hide the folder too.:-D


Have a look at the GUI and settings here for the functions of File Protection Beta.
