Windows 2000....Can you password protect folders?


OSNN Junior Addict
Does anyone know how to password protect folders in Win2000 so that ANYONE that tries to access the folder must supply a password?......Thx in advance.
You will need a third party application to do that.

Edit: you can set up compressed Zip Folders with password protection using WinAce or WinZip.


All NTFS based OS's use user level security. Users will not have access to a folder or share unless you give it to them. No need for passworded folders.

People just dont seem to want to take the time to setup NTFS permissions anymore :(.

For that extra layer of security why not use EFS?? Providing you want only your account and the local administrator to be able to access the data.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
