I've got one way, I don't know if it suites your needs though.

Try Folder Lock (Free Software)

right click the folder... go to properties... tick hidden in the general tab...
and apply it....
and go to folder options which will be in the control panel... go to view tab and then you will find how to hide and unhide folders...

That is the correct way to set a folder as hidden, but it will still show up as a lighter color folder unless you do this. Open any folder up and go to TOOLS, then FOLDER OPTIONS, and then click on VIEW and select Do Not Show Hidden Files and Folders. The folder will still be accesible to anyone that goes back and enables the Show Hidden and Files and Folders though.

Thats not the way to keep the folder the safest.

I mean if you wanted blocked.

If it's only hidden it can still be opened.

if you are using a nt based system, you can alter the permissions so that no one but you can edit or even see the folder

you can zip a file (using winzip software) -which reduces its size basically and incidently, and add a password to the zip file.
only you will know the password..

does that help?

I have used Folder Lock before (i still have it) and that is a pretty good program. The only down side is that you have to move folders you just can't password block your files or folders.
