I need strong protection of few folders in different partions on my hard drive.

How should I go about it ?

I don't mind buying a software if needed.

Thanks

I wouldn't know as I haven't used it but it's probably easier to use. Truecrypt is very feature rich and is clearly suited towards advanced users who know what they're doing.
