Ignoring Delphi for the moment, how do you see doing this in Windows? In general, you can have a compressed folder that is password protected, or you can have this folder set to have access permissions if you're on a network.


Now, if you create a special file that uses a Delphi app to "open" it and that app emulates the behavior of a folder, that might work.

As wingedPanther said, what method are you using?

Folder protection come as Operating System level, on ACL format. So, what and how is exactly not working in your code?
