    Default Password protect individual folders

    Is it possible to protect an individual folder with a password so nobody else can access the contents (but will still be able to use the rest of the computer). I want to hide a few private details like bank account log ins and passwords.

    I'm using Windows 7 home premium 64 bit

    Hi Grezaldo,

    Have a look at this link below:

    How To Lock And Password Protect Folder In Windows 7/Vista

    Please read thoroughly. I'd hate to see you lock yourself out of your own folder.

    Also, there are free tools to install that will help to achieve password protecting folders as well.

    True Free Security to Password Protect Programs (Software, Application, Exe Files) Plus Encrypt (Crypt) Files

    WinGuard Pro link: How to password protect a folder in Windows 7? | Windows 7 Themes

    Others may have ideas also.
