Thanks for your great contributions guys. Thyme I clicked your link, that program seems pretty solid. I'll give it a try
. I stumbled up this program: Lock Folder XP at http://www.everstrike.com
. The features are:
-Lock Folder XP allows you to lock files, folders, drives or network drives.
-Password protection for files, folders and drives.
-Unlimited number of objects to be protected.
-Access restrictions and hiding your data from the users that have access to your computer, from local network users as well as Internet users.
-You can lock your Windows desktop, so that users cannot delete, add or modify the shortcuts, icons, etc. on your desktop.
-Password-protected start of Lock Folder XP.
-High performance rates.
-No one, but yourself will be able to access the locked files, folders and drives.
-Lock Folder XP does not change the file structure of the data, does not move the protected data, and does not change the Windows system files. You cannot lose you files.
-Support of FAT, FAT32, NTFS.
Lock Folder XP is slighty cheaper than Thyme's Fort Knox.
SpywareFighter (nice name
), I too was considering PGP but when I used it in the past I must admit it got a bit to complicated.
Yes, this is what I don't understand. Why does Microsoft provide password protection for its Office products and yet does not bundle the same options with XP i.e. letting us add passwords to ANY files?
Oh well, I'll check this two products out and see how they turn out. Thanks again guys. Spyware Fighter, if you do find a great app do you mind dropping a quick post regarding it?
