Securing folders in Win 98

By the_duf ·
Is there any way to password protect a folder in Windows 98. I know that the Operating System itself doesn't offer this feature, but was wondering if any 3rd party utility does ???

I have tried several Security programs which have this feature. I recommend going to download.com and trying a couple, the features vary along with resource usage.

You can perform this task by using WIN ZIP,creating a folder with the files and password protecting the folder.

Also you can use WINZIP 8.0 to password protect folders

As far as I know there is no utility that does this. I have tried looking for them too, but it is no use. The only way is to zip them up and password protect them in a zip file, but even so you can delete the zip file without the password.

Hope that helps.
