If you right click a folder, then click advanced you can select 'Encrypt Contents'.

I've never used it so can't say much about how it works, but hope this is what you need.

via the command line
cipher /e /s:directory
cipher /e pathname

locking is not possible with tips and tricks but yes encryption is very well possible.

no it will always be available while logged into your account. Otherwise you need a 3rd party application i.e. folderlock
