    Hi Guys,
    I am trying to password protect a folder. I have read the previous threads and stuff and I got the encrypted disk image, and now I have the .dmg file on my desktop and the disk.

    From here how do I password protect the folder that I want to password protect?



    Thanks

    You password protect it when you make the dmg in Disk Utility. There's a setting to set the security and then you enter the password two times.

    If you created the disk image properly and it asks you for a password to mount the image, all you have to do is drag whatever folder you want to protect into the disk image.

    you select whether or not the disk is encrypted when you create it, not afterwards :)
