    Hi all,

    I just came across a really GREAT product. It is called TrueCrypt. It is an open source freeware product that gives options to create a secure password protected area on your PC (using either a secure folder (up to 100's of gig in size), or a partition on your harddrive). It is really easy to use and works on my PC (Windows Vista Business) like a dream!

    Check it out here: http://www.truecrypt.org/

    This is one of the best downloads I found for a while!!!

    Cheers
    Regards,
    Rudi

    That's what happens when you don't visit for one or two weeks - we make it hard for you to play catch-up...

    It certainly is a GREAT product. I have been using it for many years now and never put any data on a laptop without it.

    Stuart - have you been brave enough to encrypt the entire System Partition using Truecrypt?

    NO

    I don't care if people can see my copy of Kernel32.exe, so long as all my customer files are stored on an encrypted partition.
