Private Folder Needs Media Center Integration
Microsoft released Private
Folder 1.0 the other day with one feature missing; Media Center
integration! Microsoft Private Folder 1.0
gives you the ability to password protect a folder, called “My Private Folder”. Something people have wanted for years in

Folder 1.0 needs Media
Center integration for
the same reason. I know that most Media
Center don’t exit Media Center and log off when a whole family is sharing a
Media Center PC. Sometimes the same families
have content on there machines that everyone might not need access to, if you
