PGP, pretty good privacy is a good freeware utillity, try here
http://www.pgpi.org/ for some free versions. It can encrypt files but
i'm not sure about folders it can also sign and encrypt e-mails or news
In short you have 2 keys, a public and a private. You encrypt files
using the public key then you use the private key (_ONLY_ you have the
private key) to decrypt the data, when decrypting with the private key
you are also asked for your password. Also if you have admin rights to
your PC then you can change the security on the folder to only allow
your user account access to the folder or files that you have encrypted.

I have some highly confidential data that I frequently access on in a folder
that is on my desktop computer (ie win2k). I want to make sure no one but
me will able to see this data. Does anyone know of any freeware\shareware
that will 1) en-crypt the data in the folder and/or 2) require a password
to open up the folder? I need to make sure a person like our lan admin or
desk top support person can not figure out a way to get to the data.
