  1. Hey guys,

    Is there a way to password protect an individual folder or file rather than needing one to initially sign in? In the same line, is there a way to password protect a floppy disk?

    As usual, thanks for your feedback.

    One choice is to compress the folder and then password protect it. Files can usually be saved individually with a password within their program. If you are using NTFS then they are controlled by the system.

    Zip your files

    Win Zip (even the evaluation version) allows you to assign passwords. So zip your files and copy them to your floppy or CD.

    Thanks guys! The winzip method worked like a charm. I appreciate the help.

    Regards,
