Up to 8meg encryption levels can choose from 64 algorithems. Very easy to use.

What I mean here is using encrypt method or password to protect files, not by compressing it and apply a password for compressed files.
Anyway, thanks for helping!

I know. most people just don't realize you can user winrar for this. I have some password protected compress files on my harddrive, that my wife would kill me if she seen them

Up to 8megs of encryption levels and up to around 64 algorithems, ciphers, and hashes you can use, and it's free.
