Hello everyone,

I was wondering if there was some good software to password protect folders in Windows 8? I found lots of software, but I just didn't feel like any of it was completely safe.

Does anyone know some good software to password protect?

Thanks in advance!

Depending on the version of Windows 8 you are running you could use BitLocker.

Comes built into the Pro and Enterpirse versions of Windows 8.

Thank you! Since I have Windows 8 pro I can encrypt folders using Bitlocker

You could hide the folder.

that is not password protecting it, and anyone who is snooping around will be able to see it in a heart beat.

TrueCrypt... not technically a folder but will mount a container file (like a zip) as a drive...
