I have tried several programs that are designed to password protect folders that contain information I would rather not share with others. While they seem perfectly able to password protect a folder, this folder seems far from secure. In each case, the folder itself is not accessible without entering the password, but the files are visible in the finder under "recent documents". I was hoping for a program that could securely protect these documents from casual viewing (including the "search for" section of the finder bar) while being relatively user friendly. I don't care about encryption. I don't need to protect anything from a dedicated attack. I also prefer that it doesn't have a long loading time to open files or serious risk of corruption. Maybe I am asking too much. If the program is what I'm looking for, I would even consider paying for it. I tried creating a disk image through hard drive utility, but it took a while (several minutes) to and this doesn't really fit my use.
