OS X V10.7 Lion :: Possible To Password Or Passcode Protect Folder On IMac?

Jun 22, 2012

It looks like individual files can be protected with a password or passcode. However, I wanted to know if there's a way to protect an entire folder with a password or passcode. Thus, one would not be able to access any files within that folder without the password (or passcode). Is that possible?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 24-inch, early 2009

OS X :: FileVault - Sensitive Stuff Outside Of The Home Folder?

Dec 14, 2008

As a non-UNIX-geek, and someone unfamiliar with the internals of OS X in general, I'd like to ask ya'll where sensitive data might be stored outside of the Home directory. As you may know, FileVault only encrypts the Home directory, and stores the password as a hash of the account password and the "master" reset password.

So, what sensitive stuff is outside of the Home Directory? Any system logs with potentially damaging info? Any badly written applications (i.e. MS Office 2004) that might keep sensitive data within the Application directory? Any stuff inside of the Library or System folders?

Within a user account, is there a way to prevent someone from opening a folder (in documents or images, for example) without a password? Ideally, anyone can see the folder, but when someone double clicks to enter the folder, a password pop up would appear before continuing.

OS X :: PASSWORD PROTECT FOLDER - On Wireless Server

Dec 29, 2008

I'm a photographer that stores all of my photos on two external hard drives. They are 2- 1TB drives that share 1 enclosure and 1 USB that connects both drives simultaneously. Drive A is an exact copy of Drive B.

Drive A & B: INCLUDES - (APPS) (MOVIES) (PHOTOS) (MUSIC)

Four separate folders. I recently got an Airport Extreme for the sole purpose of accessing my photos wireless. I have a roommate in my apartment, who I plan to share the drives with, however, I would like to create some kind of read/write rule so that he cannot access anything on the (PHOTOS) folder. I've tried the app, "Hide Folders", which is great, but will not let me work on the folders while the folders are hidden. I need the PHOTOS folder to be visible, but not accessible by anything other than myself.

OS X :: How To Lock / Password Protect Folder Using Disk Utility

Jul 20, 2009

I figured out that using disk utility is the best method to create a password protected and hidden folder, but i can't seem to find clear instructions on how to do this. I'd like to be able to have a folder that's password protected and hidden if possible. I'd also like to be able to add files and delete files from that folder in the future as well.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Using Disk Utility To Password Protect Folder?

Mar 27, 2012

I have used Disk Utility to attempt to password protect a folder but its not working for me. I go to FILE>NEW>DISK IMAGE FROM FOLDER I then highlight the folder I want to password protect and click the IMAGE button.In the window that pops up, I then select 128 bit encryption and leave image format on COMPRESSED.Then I enter and verify the password I want to place on the folder and hit OK.The resulting disk image appears to have been modified, but when I double click on the supposedly password secured folder, nothing happens.  The folder doesn't open, nor does a window pop up asking for a password.I'm running snow leopard.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: 2 Log-in Screens After Turning Filevault 2 On In Mac?

May 6, 2012

I turned file-vault on in Mac OSX Lion 10.7.3 and now I am presented with log-in screens 2 times whenever I reboot my mac. First log-in screen comes immediately, is a light gray screen with filevault-enabled users, so I enter my password there and after some time I am presented with a second normal log-in screen, dark gray with all users. After entering my password in this second login screen, I am able to use my mac.  

I am wondering if this 2 log-in screens is the normal behavior after turning on the filevault 2 on in Mac OSX Lion?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Turned FileVault On But Mac Hangs After Login

Mar 22, 2012

I've just turned File Vault on on my MacBook Pro 13".I've followed all the steps: noting the FileVault Key, storing it into Apple and restarting my Mac.When my Mac has started, it has asked me for my login, and everything goes OK until the moment my desktop appears. At that moment in time, my Mac hangs, and I get the "colourful beach ball" and nothing seems to happen.I do have a backup on my Time Machine and I can format the disk and start over, but I don't understand why my Mac is freezing just because I've turned FileVault on.
