Selective passwords

General Bitch:
I am not on a lan, one machind so far.  I hate the number of usernames, and passwords that the internet wants.  I also hate the passwords that Microsoft wants, I use none.  I detest passwords.

Problem:
I need passwords (privacy).  Only in two instances.  
1. I want to protect the folder and subfolders for c:\mbackup, and all its subfolders.
2. I want to protect the folder and subfolders and files for c:\data\excel\walt.

My first guess is that this is an easy question.  But I dont know the answer, maybe it is tough??

Hi Walt,

Give this a try, it should provide you with what you want. There are no native provisions in Win98, but these apps are usually free to the user.

You'll find the apps here:

You can use either FolderGuard or MagicFolder

You'd easily be able to do this on Windows NT with NTFS file privelidges, but I don't think this is possible on Windows 98 without using third-party software.
