Password protecting Windows folders

XP Pro will do this, but if you’re using XP Home you’ll need to use a third-party encryption program. I recommend Powercrypt or MaxCrypt.

You can do compression and Encryption on XP Home – in Safe Mode. You can also do file permissions in (safe mode only). However remote computers connecting to XP Home will always connect as Guest. XP Home uses a security model called Simple File Sharing.
