In this tutorial, we learn how to password protect a folder in Snow Leopard on your Mac. First, go to the finder and click on "utilities". Now go to "file, new, disk image from folder". Now, you can select the folder you want and then click "image". Make it a read/write folder so you still can edit the files and enable the encryption. Save this, then it will ask you for a password. Create a password and then verify it. When finished, uncheck the "remember my password", then click on "ok". Now, double check to make sure your file is password protected and you're finished!
