    Hi

    I was just wondering, is there an app that can password protect folders?

    I have quite a few documents on my Mac Pro that I would really like to be locked in a folder.

    Is there an app whether fee or free which can do this?

    Any suggestions/help would be great


    Thanks

    Second using encrypted disk images.

    Work great. Secure. Simple to use. I create mine in CD or DVD sizes for easy backups to optical disks.

    My preferred solution.

    Ive been using it for quite some time and have had no complaints...a really solid app all around and even allows for encryption of applications!

    Interesting.

    However, I'll stick with DU encrypted images. Simple to do. Easy to use. And free.

    +1 for Espionage. I tried Knox and didn't really like it, though it did work well. Switched to Espionage and it's great. The developer answers emails quickly and it very nice, too.

    The key is to get something that works for you. :)

    Which in this case is Espionage.

    For me, it's DU and encrypted disk images on the Mac OS and TrueCrypt for my cross platform encryption needs.

    YMMV.

    I've just checked it out, looks very useful, this was the exact kind of thing I was thinking of. Cheers
