    You can, but only if you're using NTFS as the file system. If you are, right click on the folder and select properties, then click on the security tab. This may not be exactly what you're looking for - it will restrict access by users and groups - but you might be able to bend it to your will, depending upon your needs.

    If you need to password protect something for the currently logged in user, you'll have to go a different route.

    Hi
    Slip and over to my website and read the page 'Encryption'. I use Cryptext which may not be the best, but it's free. Latest version 3.4. Power Desk is an excellent piece of freeware with encrypt (and Wipe) built in.
