Try PGP freeware, you can download it from the net. You can encrypt specific
files. But if you lose/forget the password, you lose the file.

I wouldn't advise excel password protection - that's very easy to break
- and it's not encryption, it's just password protection.

What format is the data in?  Excel will let you password protect a
workbook.

You can also turn on encryption in Windows 2000. You have to be
running
NTFS. If you setup encryption on your system, and password protect the
Admin
user, the the only way someone can open the file is to set them up
with
rights to the file, or as a Encrypted File Recovery Agent on your
local
system. Depending on your network security, this may work. If the
Network
Admin has set the domain to override local policies, he may still have
access to it.  If this is not the case, then he would have to have
Administrative rights to your system.

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.
