Windows XP, one quick question; how do you set up the folder's username and password to protect it?

Ah, sorry - looks as though it's only if you're on a network and the folder in the level above the folder you make private is a shared folder.

It doesnt work for stand alone machines. Only password protection on individual documents is possible in XP. Sad

That is correct there isnt really any way to password protect a folder on a computer only maybe if you use a thrid party program, but it will probably want to put it into its own file and you will have to unprotect it to get to it not as easy as just putting in a password.

The way you can password protect is if you have two computers and you are accessing a folder on the toher computer it is possible to put a password on a shared folder.
