you could hide folders within folders, but it isn't a really secure way.

to hide text files, use stega something locknote. it passwordprotects your stuff.

If you right click on the folder and then go down to 'properties'. In there you should see a tab on the top called 'security'. Click that. You can then allow certain users on your computer certain permissions. There is also an 'advanced' option in the security section with even more options. I have not really messed with this function, but it is there.

Is that what you were looking for?

Can Use Hide Folders XP, works with XP only (obviously), protects your folders by password, also protects your folders even if the parent folder is deleted.

u can dl folder lock it puts a pw encreption on your folders.
I think it is a 30 day trial after that you can buy it for a small fee.

you can hide the files, but if iyou dont want 3rd party software, just zip it with a password. Kinda tedious, tho.

If you are using NTFS partitions along with WinXP then you can apply lot of security attributes to any folder. It is not completely fool proof but provides you with a very good grade of security.
Look for the security tab in properties.

If u using windows xp with ntfs partition is more securely Smile than using third party software or zip and password it. since there is need a time for compression or encrypt those files and decrypt it back for reading. and it;s very2x a bad condition at specialy when u want to securely a big big big files..

If you use NTFS instead of FAT32, as suggested earlier, you can limit browsing of your entire filesystem by user. Set yourself up as the administrator, and don't give the password out. Then anyone else who uses the machine will have a different user account, and have varying rights of execution, viewing, and read/writing, based on the criteria you specify as the administrator.

You need to choose NTFS as the file system when you install XP.

There're many programs to make that; what they so is that they make a folder on your disk and hide it; then you open the program and it'll ask for a password which you have written before. Then a folder is opened and nobody will know about it! It's cool! Razz
