    Password protection (Word 2003)

    Dear Loungers, is there a way to put passwords on folders, either through Microsoft Word (to avoid having to password-protect all of the documents in a folder) or Windows (when the file within a folder cannot be password-protected)? Thank you!

    Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Professional offer folder and file encryption in the properties dialog for the folder. This is locked to your login, so others who log in on your computer will find those folders inaccessible. For more info, search for Encrypting File System (AKA EFS).

    Oh well; I have Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition. So I guess this doesn't apply to me. I guess it's just back to manual passport-protection...

    Kind regards, JMT

    You could use TrueCrypt to create an encrypted virtual disk.
