    Creating a password protected shared folder on Skydrive/Dropbox

    Basically I want to create a folder that I can have people upload photo's into but I want that folder to have a password. I don't want people to have to login to a skydrive or Dropbox account, but I would like to be able to provide a link which goes directly to the folder but only allows access when they provide a password. Is this possible?

    This is for personal use and not work.

    I am fairly sure DB does not allow this, DB is fairly basic in it's share security anyway.

    To do this do I:
    - Install the client software
    - Create the shared folder as public
    - Encrypt & set password
    - Get link to provide to others?
