Default Password Protect Files

I'm interested in knowing how to encrypt or password protect my files I've tried folder lock but it has a limate to how much you can store encrypted/password protected files. I find this to be a problem with many encryption/password protected files is there a free one with no limatations and also what do you use for protecting your files.

bah evil not good enough that is not good enough (or is it). EFS is 128bit strength isn't it I know some algorithems can get up to 2048bit strength. Also that offers no password feature that I know of.

Yeah I've looked at it but I prefeer easy encrypt more than that just because it has password protection and it's simple. Keep friends out of my files I really like that but the problem is that it's a 30 day trail as are all encryption products it seems. PGP is used by alot of corporations it might be a good choice if it offers password protection of files instead of self extracting and self decrypting.
