hi i was wondering if someone could recommend some simple and free file encryption software.
basically i just want something where I can right click a folder in windows 7 and choose "encrypt" or something similar, and then be able to enter a password. then from that point forward, when i try to click on that folder it will prompt me for that password before it will let me view it.
i don't need to encrypt entire volumes, just a few folders here and there
thanks fo the reply - i knwo it can be done using winrar or winzip but thats kind of a pain because i have to unzip it every time i want to access it and if i want to add files to the folder its not as simple as just dropping them in like with a standard folder. its close but just a bit more tedious than i was hoping for.
i saw trueCrypt but when i tried to install it, it said that its not compatible with windows 7 and wont be until some time after its official release date. bummer
