I'm searching for a solution to Password-Protect some of my Folders. Is there any Tool on the list that can do this very simple?
I don't need high-security encryption or something like that. I only want to make some folders invisible to search for and cannot be opened accidently from someone who sits 2 minutes on my pc. :thumbsup:

Mod Edit: This post was split from the freeware list topic, and moved to it's own topic. ~tg

If your looking for a simple way to password protect some folders, just zip them up, and add a password to the file.
If your looking for something a little more secure, look under the File Encryption heading, in the Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps topic.
