I would like to password-protect a folder on my USB flash drive, so when someone tries to open the folder, they are prompted to enter a password. I have a mac, but also need to use the flash drive with a pc running windows xp, which I am not able to install software to.
I run debian and I'm looking to limit a folder to only be accessible by one user. How do I set the permissions up so only that one specific user can enter it, and no other user. The folder I'm talking about is in /home/user1/ and is named protected.
Here I am showing some scripts I am using to protect folders against deletion or from view or both.
To protect from deletion only 'chattr' command was used. But to prevent both deletion and viewing I change the parent folder ownership to 'root' and set folder property to 'list files only'. But these operations can be done only by sudoers.
I recently got a folder with sensitive data , so to create a password for the folder , I right-clicked on it and selected compress and selected .ZIP format and then entered a password for the folder. Now I have completely forgotten the password and urgently need the contents of the folder. Please help.
I want to share a folder with another Ubuntu 13.10 user on the same computer. I've shared the folder and chose the option that requires a password to access the shared folder via the network browser (Allow others to create and delete files in this folder). When I try to open the folder from another login I'm asked for a username, workgroup and password.
