Subject: Protect folder data.

Hi,

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.

Try pgp, http://www.pgp.com, Mcafee also has some encryption utilities.

I would go with actually encrypting the data, as most of the folder control are easily circumvented, especially when 
the person you are hiding it from has higher access rights then you on the system.
