    well bro..if ur using 98 / 2000 then herz what u can do.....


    Right-click on empty space in the folder which you want to protect and
    select CUSTOMIZE THIS FOLDER, then choose CREATE HTML DOCUMENT FOR THIS FOLDER. Once the document is opened in Notepad, scroll down until you see
    Insert a blank line after this string.

    Then insert the following text.
    Put a password in the place of YOURPASSWORD but leave the quotes. Save the document, exit Notepad,
    refresh the folder (or hit F5), enter your new password, and the next time
    you try to enter that folder,
    you'll be prompted for your password. If you enter a wrong password you'll end up in C: drive!

    This works on Windows 98 and 2000.

    @ saROman : BTW, this tip will work only if someone uses Windows GUI to open the folder. If someone goes to DOS prompt and goes to the folder, the contents will be easily visible (and copyable) with a simple dir (and copy) command :(
