My situation is that I have a laptop at home that I do a lot of my work on, and I want to sync it with the computer at my school that I have to share with others. I've had a problem with some co-workers stealing my files from that computer. I have found a good solution for the sync (a service called Dropbox) that places a single folder on the computer that is synced with the same folder on my other computer. But now I also need to LOCK that synced folder on the computer at my workplace. The way Dropbox works, if that folder is locked, it' ok but just doesn't sync until you open the folder with the password. But as soon as you open the folder, it will sync. However, if the files inside are also encrypted (which changes the original file), then Dropbox detects that these are new files and deletes the originals, replacing them with the new encrypted files. That's a level of security I don't need or want.
So now I'm trying to find some kind of program that will just let me lock this one single folder.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
