    password protecting folders

    Is there a way to lock folders with a password? I've been messing with TrueCrypt, but haven't had much success yet with it yet

    Thank you,

    I was just searching around... Maybe you should check this one out:

    No, but you can use group memberships and permission modes or even access control lists to restrict which users (other than root) can get into a directory or a file. If you really need password protection, you will have to resort to encryption, yes.
