HI,

I guess Windows (NTFS) has a func to do that or you can crypt the data with : eg SafeGuard PrivateCrypto.

So long,

What you are requestion sounds like archive encryption. Pretty much all archives can have passwords added to them and they can hold files in a folder structure. I would recommend you use 7-zip. While archives are usually used for compression purposes, you can simply set the compression to store, so that it doesn't compress the files and folders in the archive, but simply allows you to store them in the archive and add a password to it.

http://www.7-zip.org

7-zip is free, open source, and uses 256bit AES encryption, currently one of the strongest single key encryption algorithms out there.

Thank you, but I don't wanna encryption (The files are not that secret :ph34r:) just lock the folder.

Like I can't open my D:\ becuase of HP. They have the D:\ drive like a recorvy disk, so when i try to open the drive a dialog pops op and say I can't open. More like that...

(To open the disk I just can use the command sole :geek:)

I did it in autoit once, just write a script that will do something like this:

Opt ( "WinTitleMatchMode", 3 )
While 1
    Sleep ( 1 )
    If WinExists ( "My Documents" ) Then
        $hwnd = WinGetHandle ( "My Documents" )
        WinSetState ( "My Documents","", @SW_HIDE )
        $pwd = InputBox ( "Folder locked.", "Please type the password to enter", "", "*" )
        If $pwd = "abc123" Then
            WinSetState ( $hwnd, "", @SW_SHOW )
            WinSetTitle ( $hwnd, "", "My Documents - Authorized" )
        Else
            MsgBox ( 16, "Folder locked.", "Bad Password!!" )
            WinClose ( $hwnd )
        EndIf
    EndIf
WEnd

EDIT: You cant have single quotes in autoit boxes...

If you are using that script for something you really seriously need to protect I'd recommend some sort of system to make sure if someone closes the program it opens again.
