I saw a similar thread posted at another site and thought, I could really use something like that too, so I figured I would ask the experts here if they know of a good free app like this.
It would be nice if it could hide and lock folders, but just to lock them so you can't open them and look inside without a password would be ok.
I'm not looking for a program like AxCrypt that will only encrypt the files in a folder, but does nothing to prevent someone from opening the folder and seeing what's inside and deleting files or renaming them etc...
Also programs like TrueCrypt are not what I'm looking for either. I want a simple to use program like AxCrypt, but will also lock or encrypt a folder, so you cannot open it and look inside it without a password.
Perhaps a lot to ask for in a free program, but I know you guys get around here and if anyone knows of such a program most likely you guys would.
Oh, and I'm running xp home.
Thanks very much for any help.
