Microsoft has released a new add-on for Windows XP, which allows users to create a private folder to store sensitive data. “It’s a useful tool for you to protect your private data when your friends, colleagues, kids or other people share your PC or account,” stated Microsoft officials on the firm’s official website. The new add-on - Private Folder 1.0 - enables users to create a folder called ‘My Private Folder’, which is then password-protected. However, the tool only lets users create a single folder. In order to download the new add-on, users must first prove that their copy of Windows is legitimate by validating it through Microsoft’s Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) test here . Once a user’s XP operating system is validated, Private Folder 1.0 can be downloaded for free from Microsoft.com. The new add-on is currently available to Windows XP Professional, Media Center Edition and XP Home users with Service Pack 2 (SP2) installed.
