Folder passwords

By jason ·
I have reviewed about 25 different programs and none will do what I need.

I simply need to place a password on several user folders. Each user has a folder they put documents in. I would like a program where I can place a different password on each folder that is required to open the folder. I need NO encryption. Just the ability to place different password for different folders.

Problems with all the progams I've tried:

-Use a single password for all files protected
-use encryptionto replace original files
-run in the background

I just want a simple program that will prompt me for a password when I try to open a folder. I need to be able to assign a different password to each folder. Does anyone know of a program that does this. I am not on a network where Group Policies can be implemented, so I need a 3rd party program

Depending on your Windows version, you can do this from Windows Explorer (assuming you use Windows). Just right click the folder, choose properties and select Share Folder.
You will have the option to open as Read Only, FULL or Depends on Password. Then simply assign a password to the action. no third party shite needed.:-)

ya know....as long as no one has local access to the server (and they don't in my situation), I think this will work. I can't beleive I didn't consider that myself...all I need is password level security. And I can assign a different password to each folder as per the user. Very well done. Again, I can't beleive I needed help to figure that out.
