welcome to WebmasterWorld, bingbing!
any requests that supplies a 200 OK response is "available" and "hidden folders" are wishful thinking.
I have added a password challenge response on the folder now
i assume you mean basic authentication?
the 401 response is one solution.
you can also provide a 403 Forbidden response but allow requests from your IP address if that's an option.
