+1. Just make sure you remember the passwords!

+3 for TrueCrypt, easy to use. Use it ourselves.

But as Speedy says, don't forget that password or you will probably lose the lot.

Again, dont forget your password

Used EasyCrypto once from www.handybits.com .... 128bit encryption .... if anyone can remember the password I used, I'd be eternally grateful if you could send it to me via PM.
