Folder Lock/Unlock

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has written any scripts that would lock a folder under windows, more specifically on a usb drive, and have a password to unlock it?

Using autoit to do this is like trying to cook a 6-course meal for 12 people with an easy-bake oven. Its probably possible, but there are just other better methods

For instance, try using Winzip or the like and just adding all your files to a password-protected archive maybe.

fix it so the permissions on the files block the user. Simple enough to do. Beware, you can fix it so no one can open them, and then you are screwed.

Thanks, I think I will look into the permissions thing!
