RE: Protect folder data.

What format is the data in?  Excel will let you password protect a workbook.

You can also turn on encryption in Windows 2000. You have to be running
NTFS. If you setup encryption on your system, and password protect the Admin
user, the the only way someone can open the file is to set them up with
rights to the file, or as a Encrypted File Recovery Agent on your local
system. Depending on your network security, this may work. If the Network
Admin has set the domain to override local policies, he may still have
access to it.  If this is not the case, then he would have to have
Administrative rights to your system.

I have some highly confidential data that I frequently access on in a
that is on my desktop computer (ie win2k).  I want to make sure no one
me will able to see this data.  Does anyone know of any
that will 1) en-crypt the data in the folder and/or  2) require a
to open up the folder?  I need to make sure a person like our lan admin
desk top support person can not figure out a way to get to the data.
