Password protecting folders

  Midsman2005 12:52 30 Aug 2006

Dear forum,

Is there a freeware program anybody can suggest for password protecting folders and the files within them that are on a second HDD (Basically they are not in My Documents).

OS - Windows XP home.

It does not need to be particularly secure and able to repel expert hackers, just needs to be able to stop little prying eyes from looking at my cash flow!

Thank you in advance.

select properties - then third tag Security - and set it to admin access only ;)

Thank you for the reply.

I have finally remembered how to do it using Winzip, which has created another question for me! I am going to start a new thread about that.

Thank you all the same :-)
