I need to setup a password on an individual folder in WinXP Pro. A few Different people use this box (all logged on as same user) and I have some concerns about certain information being accessible, to less than well-meaning individuals.

So I don't want to try and setup different users and permissions and netLogon Stuff.
I just want to be able to keep one or two folders locked with a password.

thanks for your time!

if i'm not wrong,i think you need the partition to be as ntfs ,and then you can right click a folder and make a password in the properties,

Well you can't password protect files, but you can encrypt them. Check out this link And ronenfe is right, you have to have your computer formatted in NTFS for it to work.

"Well you can't password protect files"

Can U password protect folders.
Or are folders the same as files in this example?
