How to protect a compressed folder by requiring a password
You can restrict access to files and folders in compressed folders by requiring a password.

Important The password for a protected, compressed file is not recoverable. If you lose the password, you will be unable to access that file.

Note You cannot protect an empty compressed folder with a password.

To protect the contents of a compressed folder, follow these steps:

1. Double-click the compressed folder that you want to protect.
2. On the File menu, click Add a Password.
3. In the Password box, type the password that you want to use. Type the same password in the Confirm Password box, and then click OK.

Note When you try to move or open a file that is protected with a password, a Password Needed dialog box is displayed. Type the correct password in the Password box, and then click OK.
