    I have some files that I want to put in a folder and keep out access to it (so you can't see what files are there or try to view them). I want to do this so the only way to get in is by a password. Is there anyway to make this possible or be done individually with files or folders.

    P.S. I know I could zip the folder but that takes to much work and on top of that I have to worry about deleting the unzipped file each time.

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Please search the forums, this question is asked like 10 times a week.

    In essence, use disk utility to create an encrypted disk image, store your files inside this. The disk image will require a password before it will mount and make your files available.
