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.
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 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.
I have a computer with Windows Server 2008 ("R1") SP2, which I use as a home server, and another with Windows 8 ("Home"), which I use daily. I want to share a folder from the server to the client, but protect the share with a password.
I've been able to share the folder unprotected, by adding "Everyone" to the permission list.
I want to share folder over a network, but I don't want that everyone can access the folder. So, I want to secure that folder with a password, so that only people who knows the passward can access the folder. Is that possible? HOW?
