Is it possible to have a password for a single folder on my hard drive?
I don't have a password on my xp account, just want to secure one folder...

I don't think its possible, but you can always put a password on your account and anyone else who uses the computer can run off a seperate account.

There are a variety of 3rd party applications that will do this for you...

Some lock a folder, some hide it. You can also create a folder archive (compressed) with many ZIP programs and password protect that.

The bigger question is why NOT password protect the account? This greatly enhances your security and makes third party add-ons irrelevent
