Folder Password Expert lets you prevent people from viewing, printing or altering your confidential documents and sells for only $39.95. The program can password protect folders on the hard, network and USB drive.
Will Folder Password Expert work on my PC?

If you use Windows, Folder Password Expert was designed for your PC. The program was extensively tested on Windows XP, 98, NT, 2000 and ME machines to ensure its complete compatibility.
How do I password protect a folder?

Just right-click a folder in Windows Explorer and select Protect Folder. Choose your password. That's all there is to do -- the folder is protected. When you try to open it, Folder Password Expert prompts you for the password.

It's even easier than that. Folder Password Expert comes with a step-by-step wizard to help you select and protect folders.
The best features
Reliable folder protection.
Should your P? be rebooted in Windows Safe Mode, DOS or another operating system, your data is safe.

Password security.
Unlike other utilities, Folder Password Expert never stores the passwords on your hard drive or in the Windows registry, where malicious users can easily get them. It stores only the password checksum (unique ID), which cannot be used to get your passwords.

Support for USB external and flash drives.
If the drive is lost or stolen, your confidential information won't end up in the wrong hands.
