At my school, they have set something up so that if you try to access certain folders, a password prompt (that is the same as the IE .htpasswd prompt) appears.

I want to know how to do this on my comp at home, and whether or not it's built in to windows. I have turned on advanced file sharing and not found any option like this.

You have to use NTFS for this (assuming you use Windows XP/2000/2003).

- Create the folder
- Go to the Folder properties
- Go to the Security TAB
- Give the right users (you're username) permission to read from the folder, and the other users no permissions.

You don't get a password message when you try to open it as the wrong user, but it will show a error message...
