    Is it possible to lock the folders on C drive on Lenovo windows notebook with password?

    There are some important documents saved on C drive of my Lenovo notebook. I wish to lock those folders with password in order to protect it from third party users if any. Is that possible?

    Hello,

    you can use the windows default Bitlocker to lock whole drive with password. (available in some versions of windows 7 and 8 only)

    secondly if you want to lock the selected folders you need to download a third party software like folder lock to lock the folders and files. there are many software available just google it and download its trial version.

    Hi,

    As you havenot mentioned the version of windows i`m suggesting one in Windows XP and the other a third party software TweakUI which you can download from the internet.

    For Windows XP,
    Select the "folder" you wish to protect, Right-click folder and click "Properties" Click "Advanced" Check "Encrypt contents to secure data" Click "Apply" , "Ok".


    For TweakUI,
    The TweakUI enables you to protect. Follow the steps :
    Open TweakUI > Explorer > right side of window under Settings, select" "Encrypt" and check the box.
    The option should be below Prefix "shortcut to" on new shortcuts and above Show "View workgroup computers" in NetPlaces.

    Thanks.

    hi guest !!
    if you want to do it manually than put all those folder in zip files.
    and than :-

    1. right click on zip file.
    2.select add password
    3. you will be prompted for password.
    4. add password
    your folder is now locked.

    or,you can use a software "Folder Lock" to do the same job.

    it depends upon you what you want to do.
    have a niceday
