    hi there
    does anyone know if there is a way to password protect a single folder? and also does the 'file vault' feature slow down things and awful lot?
    cheers

    IMHO FileVault sucks. You can create a .dmg file/folder/archive which is encrypted and password protected. Just go to the Disk Utility and create a new image and select the encryption method(s).

    Good luck, if you need more help I'm here :eek:
