    Hello all!

    Forgive me if I am in the wrong group, I am looking to create a folder that
    will be carried on a flash disk (64 MB). In this folder I will have
    different types of files. I want to be able to password protect the folder,
    then once it is open, access all files (WinZip requires the password to look
    at every file within the folder everytime). Also since I will be using this
    on a variety of computers (os XP, 2000, 98 - maybe), somehow this has to be
    a stand alone product or at least a very small program so it will fit on the
    flash disk with the other files.

    Any direction would be greatly appreciated! I'll be watching this post.

    Thanks!
    Tanner

    Perhaps PGP-Disk or Bestcrypt are what you're searching for.

    You can find many file protection programs now on Google, such as TrueCrypt, Kakasoft Folder Protector and so on.
