Put your stuff in a folder right click then send to zip (compressed) folder open it right click then add password
Peter, you don't know what you're talking about. Do some research before posting links.

Those would take decades to find a password like Awesome39123
I tried experimenting with what you said on my computer and it didn't work. I created a new file, right clicked on it, clicked send to comprehesed(zipped), then I opened the folder and right clicked, but there was no "add password" option. This isn't the first time I've tried this either; you must have left something out.
I had the same problem C3Yaoihunter did
hey I was looking at the comment by ghfghdrt and it does actually work as I have just done it and you have to have files in the compressed folder and right click where there is no files and add password is at the bottom of the list I hope it helps
you could used 7zip
once installed
right click on the file(or folder)
choose -7zip
then -add to archive...
and read a lot
then look for the menu to put your password
it should be easy
use google to help yourself in understanding 7zip

Thank you
is there a free program to password protect a folder on a flash drive
Thank you
This should help

As I understand you install a small file on your usb flash drive and assign a password to it. You can still use the flash drive in every computer and no program is needed to install on the computer. It just asks you to enter your password when you try to open the drive.

you can put all your files in a zip folder and place a pass word on that by going in to the folder and going to file then click add password its easy.
I don't have an "add password" option. Do you have this within MS Explorer? within WinZip? If not, what software gives you the add password option?

Thank you
You can't make a password for your flash disk, but you can encrypt your data with a program like truecrypt, but your data are no longer accessible only on a PC with that program installed on.

You can put password by downloading a software called free file hide from n then you put passpord. Put your all files or folders in it. Nobody can get in to it without a password.
Thank you
there is a software called U3 which can be downloaded or if you but SanDisk Cruzer memory stick, it has one, then you can enable the security password. Basicaly it make a autorun program as soon as you enter the memory.
