    Hi guys, I was wondering if anybody knew any third party software that would allow me to create password protected folders in Snow Leopard. I know of a method using disk images, but this doesn't allow people to alter the contents of the folder.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Sure they can. You just need to create a read/write disk image. They can add and edit files all they want.

    TrueCrypt is a file-containment software that creates a volume file and then you can read and write as you please. Government-state-of-the-art password protection encrypts the file. You open it and mount it as though it was a disk through TrueCrypt. I use it every day to store online bank receipts and stuff.
