Software to Password Protect and Lock Folders in Windows
Folder Password Expert - Frequently Asked Questions
Why can't I password protect a folder larger than 4 GB?
You cannot password protect folders larger than 4 GB located on a volume that uses the FAT file system. Reasons? Folder Password Expert saves the folder contents to a locked file. The largest file that can exist on Fat32 (Windows 9x/Me) is 4 GB. To create a file larger than 4 GB, you must use Windows NT/2000/XP with the NTFS file system.
Also, please note: even if you use the NTFS file system, the folder must not contain a file larger than 4 GB.
How to unlock a folder located on a removable drive?
Folders located on floppy disks and removable drives can be password protected but not copy-protected —you can copy or remove the folder but you cannot access its contents without providing the correct password.
These folders are not added to the List of Folders to Unlock. To access such a folder, double-click it in Windows Explorer (Folder Password Expert must be installed on the machine).
Can I burn a locked folder on CD/DVD?
Yes, you can. You need the latest version of the program for this - Folder Password Expert USB. This is a download link to the free 30-day trial version.

How do I protect a network folder (or a folder located on a server)?
Folder Password Expert USB can protect folders over the network:
You do not need to install Folder Password Expert USB on the server; install it on your local workstations. Before installing Folder Password Expert USB, unlock all folders and uninstall the previous version of Folder Password Expert.
When you protect a folder over the network, you can access the folder from any computer in the network that has Folder Password Expert installed (you will be prompted for a password when trying to access the folder).
If you protect a folder on your internal hard drive, the folder is copy-protected and cannot be accessed over the network. If you want to let network users access your folder, turn copy-protection off on your computer.
To turn copy-protection off:
After that you can access protected folders over the network. Please note: when the folder is unprotected, it does not differ from other folders on your computer and other users can access it.
I forgot my password. Can you send it to me?
No. Folder Password Expert does not send your password to us. If you are not certain you will remember your password, use the Hint option when protecting the folder with a password.
