Can we put security on a folder in Windows 98? If yes, then how?
Windows 98 does not offer any way to secure a file or folder on the hard drive from local access. In short, if I can sit down at your Windows 98 computer I can read every file on it, unless you have used some third party encryption program, or wrote the file in some language I do not understand. It is possible to secure the Windows 98 folder from access across the network. If you must offer or share folders for users to access your files on the network, you can secure these shares by setting passwords. To obtain file system security, you must use Windows NT, Windows 2000 or XP Professional.
