I use the Secret Disk software to hide my important files and projects. It creates a virtual "X" drive, that is only viewed when the program is open, with a password.

Stupid question... what's wrong with bitlocker?

It's already built into Ultimate, and you can set it up so the drive unlocks with a password. Simples.

Why do you think its a Stupid Question??? BEcause you know the answer & some1 else don't??? I guess then upto 60% of questions on 7forum are Stupid questions according to your notion & with 3000+ post you might have answered all in the same way....Thank you buddy!!! But i guess no question is a Stupid question (according to Shawn our Admin & as well as sevenforums) I'm aware that BitLocker is an in-built feature with Ultimate,Enterprise edition (can't say about Home/Premium edition as never used it) but if 1 is logged in with the Admin account then the drive is unlocked by default if then some1 access your files,folders how to protect it, that what i wanted to know??? And others did helped me to get what i was looking for Simple!!!

I apologise I think you may have misunderstood me. I was not calling your question stupid. I meant that I was about to ask a stupid question. Obviously I knew that you didn't want Bitlocker for whatever reason, I was just curious as to why.

Sorry again for any misunderstanding.

Not an Issue Buddy...it was just..the way you said it, will make any1 feel offended even if that's not your intention...because an experience (3000+ post & 2 g8 batch) guy like you will never say anything as such & i know that...But no hard feeling & we are good.....we are Geeks we don't have time to fight so let the Politician do that for us let us make Win7 an g8 experience for our fellow mates...

Coming back to your question: Why not using BitLocker as i mentioned in the above posts that i hate creating mulitple user account as i'm a Tester by nature & keep trying out average 5-7 apps/prog in a week & can't keep switching b/w different accounts, so logged in the Admin account all the time. Now if my roommate happen to check his mail, that's when i'm vulnerable as No BitLocker will be in place though i use another app/prog like WinMend's Folder Hidden but that can only hide files & folder but not a complete disk drive, so i wanted to know if any program/s/w available that i can use to lock a complete partition drive.

Simple software/way to lock folder?
I am looking for a basic and simple software or perhaps a built in feature in Win 7 to lock a folder. All I am looking for is something which just puts a password on a folder and perhaps prevent it from being deleted. Nothing else, no encryption or anything.
