How do I set up password-protected folders?

I've already tried the compression-way
(Moving the files into a compressed/zipped folder; then 'File' -> 'Add Password')...
But using that way requires you to enter a password for EVERY file you want to open/view

Are there any good+FREE programs to download
that make it so that you could add a password to FOLDERS (not files)?


Help :(



-- EDIT --
Also... the programs I've tried were "not good enough".

One program was almost perfect. It was easy to use (although having to have a password 6 characters long was annoying)... But everytime you wanted to open the folder, you had to go throught the process of setting a password on it AGAIN. Setting a password after simply viewing files in the folder is very annoying.

Use an encryption program then.

Just google search for Axcrypt. You will find it on Sourceforge.net

What the heck is up with people using % signs in their thread titles. Second time I have seen it today. Is there some kind of significance to this. I find it annoying.

do a google search for dirlock.zip. I, unfortunately, had to use that to cma at a former job. Worked great.

Howdy folks...

I see from your profile that you are 15, I have to ask a question ( please take no offence from it )...

Whom are you trying to lock out viewing these folders ?

I suggest use ntfs security permissions and encryption for more secure files. But remember encryption will slow down reading the files and also if you are not on the domain it is *very* tricky to recover efs files if you user account is lost or damaged.
