I want to protect some folders by setting a password on it, is this possible with some software??

And if it is, would that be effective on any OS? I mean someone going from windows 3.1, 95, 98 , and beyond would all need to input the password?

Thanks.

any operating system that can use NTFS is capable of encryption.

nothing is uncrackable.

but if you right click a file or folder the encrypt command should appear.

TrueCrypt is the way to go when it comes to encrypting. Its not exactly what you want, but the convenience and security that come with it justify the effort.

Thanks nifty program!

Uhm I tried locking folders and files and that seems to be working fine. Though I read it only works on the OS u installed it on so not that secure.

So i looked at encryption and when I add files to encrypt hey are moved to Z: locker01

The files at original location are gone, but are moved to this Z: drive...

What's the use of that? I can still acces the files without any password by going to z: ....

EDIT: nevermind that goes away when u close the program...
New question.. what if ur trail is over, and u want to unprotect files? are u fu cked then and must buy whole version?
Second Question When I have encrypted the file, the file isn't visible anymore.. I thought the file would visible just not accesable? Can I do it the way I mentioned?

uhm..I don't know about that frankly...but before the trial version ends, unlock the folders.

This?
Stealth Mode feature can efficiently hide all the traces of Folder Lock ever been installed on your PC.

No stealth mode is about covering the tracks of the software itself not the files.

For example the locker is saved in my documents it's undeletable...
I thought my encrypted files would be like [email protected] orginal location, but instead they are gone from orginal location... ohhhh wait I get it, they are stored there in the locker of course :D im a bit slow

What if u would format the drive, i assume it would get deleted anyway of the protection?

Try Folder Access Folder Access Pro - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com i'm using it since two years now and works fine. Also any third party folder protection programs will work on that OS only. So if you have two Operating systems install it on both the systems doesn't take much time.

You can use EFS in Windows XP to automatically encrypt your data when it is stored on the hard disk.
