    Is it possible to password protect a folder?

    This may be a newbie question and I pretty much am one but I was wondering if you could password protect a folder on your computer. My os is windows 98. Thanks for the help in advance.

    This was discussed very recently. Search through the archives to find it. Basically, it comes down to this, since you're running Windows 98, you'll need a third-party tool to password protect a folder.

    I remmeber using an application to do that, 'cause I am not sure that Windows 98 can offer you this type of protection.

    Here are two:

    1) Hide Folders
    2) Lock & Protect

    Hi,
    There are a lot of freeware around that u could try at http://www.webattack.com. I had the same requirement as u had and had downloaded MAXCRYPT at this link http://www.webattack.com/freeware/se...wencrypt.shtml ; I tried it and it really does the job. Just be careful not to loose yr password. Good Luck

    PGP also has some options to encrypt. There is a freeware version available.

    Check out www.pgpi.org or just do a search on PGP

    another one

    You might also try GNU Privacy Guard at http://www.gnupg.org . It is a free, open source application similar to PGP.

    Cheers,

    Im would consider this folder protection, but it does keep your files safe, its a little tool called scramdisk, you can get it here: www.samsimpson.com
