    I don't need to, since I don't organise stuff in folders in my mind. It's more of an ocean of thoughts and memories, some of which sit on the surface, and some of which I need to dive for a bit to access.

    In all seriousness, I've never used any folder-locking software. But if this is on Windows, you can restrict access to folders just by setting permissions (right click the folder > Properties > Security tab).

    ok Raffles!
    I tried what you suggested on my PC and i am using Windows XP.
    I right clicked on my folder to go on sharing and security tab and once i was there, i could see a check box "make your folder private" but to my astonishment that checkbox was not available to me.
    I mean that was blurred or unavailable to click on


    Now why is that So? Can you please help me in this regard?
