ive had a look thru that,
and i dont recommend it.
it involves having the networking activated,
then bringing up shared files and folders,
this gives you the option of 'password protect'
but seems to be only requiring password from Other Users.
And doesnt stop the folder getting deleted from what i can see.
There is always the 'awkward way'
that does work, but its a pain.
If you want to keep personal stuff separate,
then a floppy is the best bet for written stuff
like your own diary or such.
but a floppy will not hold many pictures, 1.4MB.
although it will hold lots of pages of written work.
There are programs you can get and add in as extras,
to password protect folders, but ive only ever found
one way to use the system as provided.
That is to use the 'Back Up'
Direct the back up to use a folder on the C drive,
the back up gives you a Password Protect facility.
When you've done the back up, delete the original.
Doing this requires a bit of practice with the
back up system, which is why its a pain.
On the plus side, you can store as much as you like
(well more or less) and it is secure.
So dont lose the password.
