I am simply looking for the best and easiest way to password protect a folder in Windows 7. I can't believe that this feature isn't built into the OS but that's for another post I guess.

Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Welcome scormodo, two freebies spring to mind
Rohos
and
TrueCrypt (now support in win 7 BTW)
Best of luck

Hi jonyfred, that article was written in 2003 and I don't think it would apply in win7. Quite complicated as well, I remember!
