Password prot'n of individual folders within XPPro

  Rob6 17:51 13 Jul 2009

My workgroup has bought an enternal hard drive to back up our personal PC and Outlook files. I have created a folder for everyone (11 of us) and it occurs to me that we would all wish to password protect out own folders. Is this possible within Windows XP Professional?

click here I have been using this since it was Hide Folders XP (about 6/7 years). It is not free but Reliable and worth every penny. If your workgroup split the cost it would be very cost effective.
