Locking Folders

  ukhomerj2003 11:05 27 Jan 2006

I am using Win XP Home, and will be allowing a colleague to use my home pc for a short time. I do however have sensitive files of a work nature, that need to be "locked".

Is there any way of securing the folder with a password, so i can lock out this folder, and allow him to still use data and files from the rest of the system?

You could zip the folder give it a password and make it hidden, and then move it to an unlikely spot say in youy windows folder somewhere.
