for security reasons, will you guys help me add a password to a specific folder?
I know about the sharing and security tab, but I don't think it's enough so help me guys. do i need 3rd party software? :(
If so what are my choices?
I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Do you access this folder constantly? If so, you could try:
Lockbox - locks one folder & it's subfolders
If you only go into the folder infrequently, then 7-Zip allows you to protect the folder during compression.
If you're willing to shell out $20, IObit offers Protected Folder. Reputable company with lots of good feedback.
HTH & Cheers!

How secure does it need to be? True crypt is one option - create an encrypted volume and then stick all the stuff that needs protecting in there - but you do have to mount the volume as a disk each time you want to access it - not difficult and doesn't take long (10 seconds maybe) but is 1 drawback

I want to do it like magic. hahhaha Its a great accomplishment you know?
so here's what I'm thinking:

For one, you could store the whole folder as a rar file with a password. That's what I do with the sensitive data on my PC. No, it's not porn. Just some other stuff that I wanted to keep as a surprise.
