Folder/File Permission???


I have very important data backed Up in my friend's PC.Since he is the owner of the PC I want anyone who tries to explore the Folder first ask for password and then he could open it.
How gonna it be possible??

Although.. I would think about maybe asking questions slightly differently.

"Remote Secure Folder - Suggestions?"

Might get you more responses than: "Folder/File Permission???"

PGP = Pretty Good Privacy, its for encrypting files/folders/emails/anything.. Google is your friend.
