locking folders... password protection

The checkbox in , to a folder and under private folders, is "sanctified out '...  How can I save it as a choice...?

Make sure that the disk that contains this file/folder is formatted in NTFS.
Make sure that the option to compress folders is not selected.

FWIW: If you want a protection password on folders/subfolders, I recommend that you try 3rd party freeware "Truecrypt ".

  • Tried to password - protect folders (VERY important issues) and now cannot find/access them at all!

    That's what I had to do what I did:


    Clearly, I clicked too much / the wrong thing, because these very important issues (for my work) are now completely inaccessible for me. This is not correct. I need them to work. Can someone help me please? (I feel like such a fool!)

    I tried restoring the system (twice) and nothing has changed. I have google and google to try to find a way to fix this, but so far have gotten nowhere! I'm a sort of panic... hoping someone can help me!

    So what (s) you refuse permissions on this folder? If deny you permissions to everyone, then of course your own username has been included in this group. Out of this is to start the computer with a Linux Live CD or USB key and the copy of the data in the files to external media such as a disk external hard USB or USB key. Linux will not honor Windows permissions. Then delete the files while in Linux. If all goes well, they are not system folders but are only folders you have created yourself. Then start in Windows, create new folders, copy your data to them. If you explain what and where are the files and what restrictions you want to give, we can help you to do this properly.

  • Passwords do not work to retrieve the files that I locked for the protection of personal information under my administrator account.

    I had some that I have files protected by Word, under my administration account that s wa also password protected. recently, I had to have my computer reformatted and returned it to me without administrative access, research nothing same and none of my passwords work to open these locked files. Please help me... inside one of them was a picture of my husband roommmate that he has lost the war. I need to these files and photos.  Thank you!  BTW I don't know if I have windows xp or pro.  Thanks again

    Would you be able to help me more if I had administrative control?  Because the place that did that at my computer only altered my administrative control, if I'm not mistaken it is still mine.

    At this point, you should probably take the computer to the one who did what they did and ask them to retrieve the files for you.

  • Password protect an external hard drive connected to Time Capsule

    I have a WD passport external hard drive connected to my time capsule, so my wife and I can easily share files. I have the external hard drive connected through the locked time capsules WiFi network so someone in the House can not access however if they walked the time capsule and not plugged in the external hard drive they could walk away with it. When I try to password protect external hard drive then time capsule may not recognise, and so I can't use it as an external hard drive that is shared. No one knows how, to password protect the external hard drive connected to the time capsule as if someone physically stole the external hard drive it would be locked, but have yet still recognizable by Time Capsule when I plugged?

    Hope that makes sense.

    The only way to do is to encrypt the files on the computer.

    And you both use the same password. Unfortunately, this probably means that you can not share files directly... The TC is not a SIN... never, it was designed for this purpose so there no controls to help admin file sharing.

    If you create a DMG file on WD drive that encrypt you and you can copy files to and from... but only one at a time.

    Another method would be to use a specific software... Watch chronosync.


    I don't him have not run in this configuration... so, you have to experiment if it manages what you want.

    I think that there will always be limitations on concurrent access from multiple computers.

  • How to password protect my files shared on my network?

    I am trying to share a folder on the network and the have password protected. I use Windows XP Service Pack 3 Professional. I have disabled in simple file sharing files Options. All my computers are in the same workgroup. For the record I would like to share, I have the following settings:

    On the sharing tab, I 'Share this folder', filled in the maximum limit and the share user name. The "Permissions" button, I deleted "Everyone" and put in a username I've created specifically for the sharing folder connection and he gave total control. Everything is left to him by default.

    For the Security tab, I just like default except added the user account, I created and that you have authorized for total control.

    When I look at from any computer on the network, I can see the computer and shared folders in the working group. There is a default folder "SharedDocs" I open it. But if I try to enter the folder that I created, I get the following error:

    "You are not allowed to access \\MYCOMP\SharedFolder. Contact your network administrator to request access.

    If I do all what I said above, but instead of adding the user account, I put "Guest" or "everyone, then the file can be found on my other computers without the error but no password is invited. What should I do so that when I try to enter the folder, it ask for a login and a password.

    As a side note, my other computers do not have this problem with their shared folders. When I click on the computer under 'View workgroup computers '. Rather than open a list of shared folders, it opens a prompt for a login and a password, and if they are correct, it will show that all shared folders and files shared to that user. If the password of the specific folders is not possible, should what settings I change so that it works like this instead?

    My apologies if this should have been in the files, records and research topic.

    When you connect to a network share, authentication proceeds roughly in this order:

    1. If the user on the remote computer is connected with a user name that exists on the machine sharing the passwords match, while the user is authenticated as himself without another guest.
    2. If the user on the remote computer is connected with a user name that exists on the machine of sharing and the passwords do not match, then this as seen user denied access to the computer sharing without prompting.
    3. If the user on the remote computer is connected with a user name does not exist on the machine of sharing, an attempt is made to authenticate the user "guest".  If successful, that the user connection looks like it is 'guest' on the machine of sharing user.
    4. If the remote user is unable to authenticate as a 'guest' on the sharing machine, then a name of user and password screen appears to provide authentication.

    It seems to me to make it work as you want, you want to make sure that step 3 above does not occur.  This can be accomplished by disabling the "Guest" on the machine sharing account. (This forces everyone to authenticate on the machine)  Two ways to do as an administrator on the machine of sharing:
    (A) bring up a command prompt window (start-> Run-> "cmd") and enter the command:
    NET user guest / active: No.
    (B) right click on 'My Computer'-> manage-> system tools-> local users and groups-> users
    Double-click "Invited" in the right window-> Put a check in the box "account is disabled".  "OK" your way out.
