I only have one user name/logon for my computer. Is it possible to password protect any folder or file so that only i can get access to it.User names are just a pain when you have to boot so far and then put in an user name and password?
Originally posted by mafiafromrussia u can use ntfs filing system to restrict access of other users to those folders. that's the only way i think. or get 3rd party software that does folder password protection
That would work but the only real problem I see is outside of third party software I don't think you can keep folks out of folders if they use your log in account. I would suggest creating multiple log ins and with XP all you would have to do to log in is type a password
well what i do on my computer to protect my files. i have windows ME, on fat32 partition, where i keep my temporary files.
then on 2nd partition which is ntfs i have windows Xp, where i have all my stuff. i have only 1 user in xp which is password protected, plus guest is disabled. that kind of thing works fine for me so far
