Oh, yeah....

You can also use WinRAR if it's something you are just archiving and hanging on to.  Just make sure you use a crackerproof password (at least 15 digits, mixture of upper and lower case, mixture of alphanumerics and non-alphanumerics characters).

Are you using XP Pro ??   ... if so, all you have to do is right-click on the folder you want to encrypt; select Properties;  click the Advanced tab; and check the box to Encrypt the contents.   DONE !!

But be SURE and keep a backup copy of your encryption key -- you cannot access the data without it !!

encrypt your entire disk or create an encrypted hidden drive. it's a free open source program, worths a test.
