hi i am wonderin how i can create a password for a folder of mine on windows xp as i am afraid my little sister would accidently delete my coursework. thanks in advance p.s. is it possible to make a password protected folder without a software as i heard it somewhere saying you dont need software if you run windows xp

You need to password protect your windows desktop and create your little sister her own windows login.

Control panel - User accounts and from there create her an account

Just right click the folder and pick sharing and security on the menu, then just tick the box with the caption "Make this folder private"
