Ok I don't have multiple user accounts on my computer and I can't really set one up without rousing suspicion however I do have some folders with various files I wouldn't like my family seeing
Is there anyway for me to lock these folders? simply setting them to hidden isn't enough since they have learned how to search for those too...
I need to lock these folders preferably with a password even in administrative user

If it's your computer, you set up multiple user accounts. Or, use a cloud service without using the local sync app. --- http://i515.photobucket.com/albums/t359/Entegy/Fallout%203/drink.png http://steamcard.com/do/nxe/Entegy.png

What you're asking is incredibly easy with multiple accounts, and a pain in the ass without. Your best bet is probably a password protected archive like a .zip or a .7z. --- "I think the gene pool needs some chlorine..."

But yeah like Xjph said, just create a Zip archive and slap a password on it using Winrar or 7Zip. --- Asus G74Sx | Intel Core i7 2630 2.00Ghz | Nvidia GeForce GTX 560m 2GB | 8GB's of Ram | 750GB HDD x2 | 1600X900 Screen|

From: Lonestar2000 | #004 http://www.truecrypt.org/ Most secure way, but multiple accounts makes sense. Multiple users, multiple user accounts. See how that works?
