Hi Everyone! Well since I last posted the laptop hard drive bit the dust hard. I used the suggestions posted here about Boot and Nuke and they worked perfectly when I shipped the drive back. What I would like to know is this.....Is there a way to hide a directory with files in it so that if someone grabbed the computer they would have to use a password to find what is in that directory???? Free is best.....I have searched but I dont think I am asking the right question. I have presentations and documents that when I forget to lock the computer while in a meeting or business trip I dont want prying eyes to find it. It does not have to be "Fort Knox" safe but a simple password would do. Thanks!!!!!
