When this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder.

The feature can be helpful in a number of situations - if only some people need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
