  2. Private folders encrypted and password protected folders

    Im posting this because i've been looking for a free tool like this sense XP thought people should know about it *Toast :toast:

    Windows 7 when combined with Pismo get’s an incredible feature of creating password protected folders ( *.pfo ) which they call as Private Folders. It is just like any other folder to which you can add any folder and do any operation but not password protections just comes out of the box in Windows 7.

    Updated :

    To create a private folder, you need to make a right click, select new and then private folders

    private folders

    Here are the features which will interest you :

    * Password protection.
    * Mount visibility to owner or entire users group.
    * In case you make it available to entire user group, you get option to make it available as network drive
    * Type of access to users , Read or Read and Write

    Private folders are just incredible way to share private data with set of people you want. This is what makes private folders rock. Its just not securing your data but also sharing data privately with others. You can download Pismo Private Folder from here

    Password protecting Folders

    I am building a machine for my friend and he was asking me to create folders and password protect it. How do I do in XP pro? Is there a built in tool or should I rely on third party tool? if so anything free out there?

    Thanks for the help.
