I would like to know how to password protect files under my profile with Win XP on another hard drive. Currently can only do it on the C drive where windows is installed.

Thanks,
Derek

Depending on what types of files you are trying to protect you can just zip them and use a password for the zip.

You can even make them executeable with a password if you want.

Just Right click the folder you want to protect from other users ... go to properties and then security tab --> here you'll have a list of users and their capabilities (whether they can read , write or they have full read/write permissions) ..
