not with winrar. just compress the file and set the password.
then delete the original file. when you want to see the file just open it in winrar and type the password in. this is how I keep my kids from seeing certain pictures on my computer. then is how I keep my personal info on the computer so others won't see it, too.

In the older versions about I year ago I could have sworn you needed to pay for that feature thanks for giving me the update.

there is 10gb of stuff in the folder, thats why i didnt use winrar, even if u change the compression thing to just "store" it still takes 2 long.
