Usually not in your own account. It's usually not needed because all YOUR stuff is already password protected. That why the system allows for separate users. Unless you want to protect yourself from yourself (Memento issues?) the normal way to do it is to share a folder with other users, and then you can set what ever permissions you like.Theres nothing that makes it so when i click on the folder it asks for a password?
No. What's you're asking for is called an encrypted disk image. It's a file that you click, enter a password and then it mounts your disk image as a volume (i.e. hard drive) in OSX. When you're done you unmount it like you would any other thumb drive.Theres nothing that makes it so when i click on the folder it asks for a password?
I'm looking for the same thing. I'm a teacher and we have a peer to peer network in which every student in my class logs on to the "Journalism" level while other classes log on to, say, "Digital Photography" or whatever. The problem is they can see all the desktops and everything over the network and make mischief if they wish. One student recently deleted another student's files. I'm not sure I want a separate level for each student. 150 of them use this lab. It would be cool, though, if each could have a password protected folder of their own that couldn't get deleted. The two app.s I mentioned are what I've come across in my research so far. Any recommendations?Is there an app out there that can lock individual folders? I have a few folders I need to be locked. I don't need encryption, But it would be a plus. If there is another thread direct me there please.
