Re: How to password protect the Dropbox folder in Desktop Application (Client)?

@Mike C.69 Per your concern about Dropbox folder security: Yes, if someone physically has access to your machine they can boot from a different copy of Windows or Linux and access your Dropbox folder; Windows by default does not encrypt your disk. However, it does offer that feature. Look into setting up BitLocker if you want protection against an attacker with physical access to your computer stealing your drive right out of your PC.
