    Data encryption software suggestions needed

    Hey all,

    I know little about these things, but I would like a program that does something like the following:

    I want to be able to encrypt a folder (and its contents) so that when it is encrypted, its not accessible (or even readable). But by typing in a PW or something, the folder is available and fully usable by my apps like Word, Media Players, music players, etc. seamlessly. I don't want to have to copy the data, or anything like that.

    I imagine something like this exists. I would prefer if it were free, but I'm willing to spend a few if necessary.

    Thanks!

    PS, this is WinXP.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I went ahead with TrueCrypt. Works very nicely, and you can't beat the price! :D

    microsoft had private folder 1.0 out for a short time that I use. it is a simple password protect, it auto locks after x amount of nonuse, and is just another folder in your docs and settings. If you are interested, I can link to a download I host. the file is pretty small too.

    TrueCrypt is a good app too! I do prefer PGP Desktop, but I also use PGP a lot sending encrypted e-mails and files to various peoples, so it comes in handy.

    There's also truecrypt, an open source encrypted "disk" program.

    TrueCrypt - Free Open-Source On-The-Fly Disk Encryption Software for Windows XP/2000 and Linux

    It doesn't offer all the extra features of PGP Desktop, but if all you need is the encrypted "disk" feature then it's something to consider.

    PGP Desktop.

    You can create encrypted PGP "disks" which mount on your machine with a normal drive letter. Anything saved in that virtual "disk" is encrypted. You can lock/unlock those disks at will and they employ VERY STRONG encryption.
