The password system in XP is useless, don't use it. If you need to password protect your files and folders then you will need something like True Crypt.

How can I password protect folders / files on my sandisk cruzer glide 128gb


Use the software that came installed on the drive. Use it to secure the whole disk. To access it you need to enter a password. Be careful though. The drive may not be accessible on Linux or Mac.

I creted a folder and put private things in the folder and i want to try and crete a password to the folder so that im the only 1 that can get in the folder


Hey, I'm going to assume you are running Windows, so let me provide an easier solution rather than creating a password for a folder.

Instead, you can create a ZIP file which contains all the "private things" you want to store, then put a password on the zip file.

- Download WinZIP: http://www.winzip.com/downwz.htm
- Install it by double-clicking on the file you downloaded
- Next, select all the private things you want to protect, right click on them and select "Add to Winzip".
- On the dialogue that will appear, you can add a password to your zip file, and then hit create.

That's it!

The file you created is called a "zip" file, and it contains all the private files you want to store. You can drag any new file you want to add on your zip file, and it will be added inside it (after you type your password). You can also take your zip file with you wherever you want!

It's a much easier solution that creating a password for a folder.

7zip can also do this, and it's completely free, but a bit harder to use: http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

I FORGET THE PASSWORD FOR SOWETWEAR NAMED FOLDER LOCK SO HOW CAN SOLVE THIS PROBLEM


Sorry about the problem you are encountering, you will have to uninstall the software from your computer, but before you do that, it will ask you for password during the un installation, so you will need to take the following steps;
1. goto my computer, open the hard disk
2. open the program files on the hard disk
3. Search for the name of the folder lock installation folder and delete it completely, make sure the folder lock application is not running or else you wont be able to delete it permanently.
4. goto the control panel, add and remove program, click on the folder lock icon and remove it completely.
5.click on the folder you secured, and try opening it.

Check this. I use it, because it's much quicker. If you wish to "read" the contents of the .regfile, simply right-click on it, and choose, "Edit." Just DO NOT edit the file.

After you're satisfied it is safe, double-click on it. Now, right-click on a folder you don't have access to and choose, "Take Ownership."

How many directory deep is the file going that you are trying to save? I believe the maximum NTFS file (location + name) of file length can not exceed 256 characters total.

Example: C:\user\documents\file.exe is OK

But: C:\user\documents\folder\folder\folder\folder\folder\this folder name 230 charicters long\file.exe BAD

Acer empowering technology password recovoryThe password is store


Hi.. to find the aimdrs.dat, it is located at PQSERVICE drive/root folder. In my laptop, it is on drive x:\. Please check the drive for the location in your computer. You can access the PQSERVICE, For example:
- go to command prompt (Click start, run, type: cmd)
- type: " x: " (without " ")
- type: " dir " (you will see the file of aimdrs.dat is there)
- you can copy the file to any location.
for example to external flash drive which is in drive f:\
type: copy aimdrs.dat f:\ (the aimdrs.dat file will be copied to your new location, flash disk in drive f:\
- you can open the flash disk and open the aimdrs.dat file by right click on the file and choose open with notepad or wordpad. You will see the password in there. It will say "PD=it's your password".

That's what I was doing with my Acer laptop to get the empowering technology password. I hope you can solve the problem. Good luck.
